I was chatting with Michelle Mosley on Facebook and she shared some photos of the Gospel her Dad, Semie Mosley made for her... Beautiful.

I think I'm seeing a tub of after-dinner mints melted into Mosrite mold of whipped cream. And it's fantastic.

I've seen a couple of instruments Semie made for family members over the years and they're always extra fly.

It's a shame that the Mosrite legacy is so copied and not centralized. His family should have carried on his designs. I think his last wife runs one company, his daughter runs another. The Japanese have their own companies, you got ex employees who worked with Semie building Mosrite style guitars. Then you got companies like Hallmark taking his designs. Then you even have companies now making copies of Mosrite copies. It's kinda crazy.

Here's the story as I understand it...

Fillmore, a Japanese company, have the rights to make Mosrite guitars. These rights were secured from Loretta Mosley, Semie's widow. (I dunno if Loretta is still alive or not).

Dana Mosley is assembling Mosrites using Fillmore bodies and necks, but using her own hand wound "Dana-Mo" pickups. I have learned this from various forums. (I enquired about buying one from Dana, messages were not returned, pffft.)

Ed Roman sells Fillmore Mosrites (He's dead now from what I understand so he himself ain't selling shit, whomever got his store is selling them now there as far as I know)

There is another company making Mosrite clones in Japan KuroKumo

From what i have read, ALL of these are good guitars but the Fillmores are not cheap.

Hallmark Guitars (Bob Shade) are nice but unless it's a custom order, it's not made in the U.S.A. they are assembled in the U.S.A.

Lastly E.F. Elliot makes a Mosrite styled guitar. He worked for Semie for years, his Mosrites are just gorgeous. I have never played one but he's only about 4 hours away from me in Oklahoma so I am thinking to drive down some Saturday to check out his stuff. He hand makes everything, even casts his own trems. His are amazing, probably the closest you can get to a Mosrite in terms of build quality you're gonna get unless you buy a used one Semie made.

I own a Hallmark, it's the best guitar I own (I also own a Rickenbacker 330 and a Gibson Firebird) they are priced right and play great. They have wider neck than a Mosrite would. Bob Shade is a Mosrite collector and enthusiast... his design improvements to the neck are really great (Semie's Mosrites, the necks are too narrow for my taste).

I have played a 1.) Dana Moseley Fillmore Mosrite, 2.) two 1960s original Mosrites, and of course 3.)my own Hallmark. The Hallmark beat them all in terms of playability.

That pretty much sounds right.
