    Edit:

    People were curious about how it sounds, and I got around to recording a demo, and I also got a new amp, so I figure i'd bump this thread with the video, instead of making a new thread. It's recorded with my iPhone, so the sound quality is modest, but it should give you an idea:




    1966 Mosrite Celebrity III, all original.

    with the original case:

    for a little over 5 bills after tax:

    I absolutely love the guitar. Just got a professional setup done on it. It plays and sounds wonderful! I've wanted a Mosrite since the late 90's, but could never afford one. I just got very lucky being at the right time and place when I found this one.

    So cool when you can grab an original that someone hasn't modified

    That's totally cool.

    What are those pickups like? P90-ish?

    Awesome deal!

    You could at least triple your money if you wanted to.
