1974 Mossman Flint Hills Guitar

(Serial No. 74-1114) My first "real" guitar was a Mossman. I still think they are outstanding guitars, and this is one of the best ones I have ever played. Its a tremendous, powerful guitar that will drive your music. Excellent condition with straight grain Indian rosewood back and sides, solid spruce top, ebony fingerboard with pearl dots, nickel hardware and an ebony bridge. Built pre-fire in the Winfield, KS shop and signed on the label by all the craftsmen that worked on it. Mossman was a direct competitor to Martin and Gibson in the 70's and built very high quality guitars. Good action and playability. Finish and hardware is all original with no repairs noted. The neck was just reset, frets were dressed, the saddle replaced and the guitar set up by luthier Richie Dotson. The action is perfect. Strap button added at the heel, and there is a pickup mounted on the bridge plate with a minijack in the endpin. I do not know if the pickup works. This is an excellent hand built US made bluegrass guitar with lots of volume and tone. Here is a link to a video of the instrument as played by by luthier Richie Dotson of www.acousticbox.com. Why play the same thing everyone else has? Comes with the original blue lined hardshell case.
