Andy Moseley

Andy Moseley was right next to his brother's side when they took a loan for $500 to start a guitar company they called Mosrite! The legendary guitar brand became a vital part of the boom in sales following the rise of rock and roll. A large part of the brand’s popularity was related to a special model made for the instrumental rock band The Ventures. The band had a string of hit recordings in the early part of the 1960s and could be seen on TV, on their album covers and in concert playing a Mosrite. Andy provided a wonderful background of the rise and fall of the company, which is still well known among electric guitar fans. Andy also wrote and published a series of guitar method books beginning in the 1950s.
