Another rarity from Semi Moseley of Mosrite fame - Moseley "The Sooner"
I've lost count of the number of times I've seen a rare guitar from the Mosrite stable being sold as one of the rarest ever. Here, dating back to 1973, is another contender for that title, although "The Sooner" actually was branded under the Moseley name rather than Mosrite. Still it has a few Mosrite-style touches, including that duck bill-shaped headstock which also appeared on several of Mosrite's acoustics, and it even appears to feature a brass rail in the fingerboard, although on closer inspection this appears to be a strip of rosewood in the centre of a maple fingerboard. Stylistically, the slab-bodied design seem to owe something to the erstwhile Fender Telecaster.

Currently listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $1790.
