1 ThePolecats 5 months ago Well I've been liking Mosrite for sometime now. You may have seen my thread on what's the difference between the Mark V and the Mark II. Mel confirmed they are the same thing other than the slab board version of the II. I do notice the Mark II German Carved Body goes for a lot more normally than the Mark V even though they are essentially the same thing.I got this red 1966 off Reverb recently. I hope I didn't over pay but I got it for $2159 shipped. It was a lot more, I at $2,400 + 60 shipping, before but he dropped it to $2200 + shipping if I recall right. He said people were giving him ridiculously low Offers. I offered $2,100 took it. I mean he made it as noted earlier $2099 + 60 shipping. I seen excellent condition Mark Vs being sold for about $2,500 and seen a bet beat up Mark Vs for about $1,600. Mine is not excellent but not beat up. Some nicks but not too much, so I think the $2099 plus shipping is a reasonable price. He said he took a "bath" on it, meaning he lost money on it. Not sure what he bought it for. I can guess maybe the $2,400 he had it listed at. I'll post pictures if you are curious.
