1974 Mossman Flint Hills Guitar

(Serial No. 74-841) 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 what I believe to be high grade Indian rosewood back and sides, solid spruce (probably Sitka) 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 70s 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. Here is a video clip of this guitar as played by Nathan Beaumont of Brandon, FL. The action is perfect. This is an excellent hand built US made bluegrass guitar with lots of volume and tone. Why play the same thing everyone else has? Comes with a newer hardshell case.
