I'm a bit of a guitar trademark nerd (search for threads started by me to see what I mean), so every once in a while I do a search to see what I can find.I, personally, think this is pretty cool. I've always liked the way these guitars look, but have never wanted to pay a lot for one. A Japanese version may be a good, affordable option.
Out of curiosity, how'd you find out about this? Do you work in the patent/trademark office?
I know, right?This......is.....AWESOME NEWS!!
Although i can see purists being upset at this. I personally am really excited about this.
Interesting...I didn't know that.Mosrites are being made new in the US right now by Semie's daughter.
Resurrecting old, cherished brands is a good (and cheap) way to establish a little "instant goodwill".
Of course, it can piss people off, too.
That said, it looks like we may have some MIJ Mosrites on the market soon...
I hope they have bigger necks.
