1 Proteus 1 year ago Never having paid much attention to the details of Mosrites and their reproductions, but now realizing a Mosritey guitar would be a good thing to want, I'm looking for the quick version of which to look for and which to avoid.I don't have nearly enough interest to pursue a vintage Mosey, so that's right out. And I'd rather not have anything Ed Roman had anything to do with - unless that was simply the best repro ever.I was very impressed with the workmanship and general quality of the Hallmarks I saw at the Guitar Geek festival (which was by far my most concentrated exposure to all things Mosritey.)I've visited that website at various times, and see there's a Custom 60 (with a set neck) and Custom 65 (with a bolt-on). I don't know which of those versions I should want, so that's my first specific question.I've heard nothing but good about Bob Shade, and both have his pickups and killer tremolo - and nut widths wide enough to play. That all sounds good to me, I like the color selection, and the pricing is fair. So Hallmark is where I'd go by default.I wouldn't know how those pickups compare in tone to originals, but if they're in the infield, I'm good. Minute Mosrite-manic discussions of pickup minutiae will likely be meaningless to me. So unless they're known to horribly miss the whole point of Mosriting, they're probably good enough for me. (I'm interested, though, in general characterizations of how they compare to the originals.)I gather there are other one-true-genuine-Mosrite competitors who argue about who's the Mosrightest, and who's Moswrong. I'm curious about those - how they compare to the Hallmarks, and how available such guitars even are.Then, I think, there are numerous lower-end companies who make stuff that at least looks Mosritey - but since the Mosrite design is my least favorite thing about the guitar, "looking" Mosrite is meaningless to me if the sound and performance aren't there. So I'm guessing I maybe don't take Dano and Eastwood versions very seriously. But I could be wrong.Any guidance?
