1976 Mossman Great Plains Guitar

(Serial No. 76-3795) My first "real" guitar was a Mossman. I still think they are outstanding guitars. Excellent condition with straight grain three piece Indian rosewood back and sides, solid spruce top, ebony fingerboard with pearl dots, nickel hardware and an ebony bridge. Built in the Winfield, KS shop and signed on the label by all the craftsmen that worked on it. Finish and hardware is all original. Shows the typical finish checking for Mossmans of this era. Mossman was a direct competitor to Martin and Gibson in the 70's and built very high quality guitars. Good action and playability. Nut is 1 11/16 inch. There is a very well repaired peghead crack, hence the nice price. This is an excellent vintage hand built US made bluegrass guitar with lots of volume and tone. Here is a video clip of this guitar as played by Ed Wright of Brandon, FL. Why play the same thing everyone else has? Comes with a nice hardshell case.
