Comments: Obviously, I bought this guitar because I'm a huge Ramones fan. I've always wanted a Mosrite Ventures II, but who can really afford one? This was my first time doing any sort of guitar build, but I think it came out awesome.
My goal was to recreate Johnny's guitar, as close as possible on a non-existent budget.
The bridge pickup was replaced with a Dimarzio FS-1. (I could only source one with a white cover. Black cover is in the mail).
Replaced both pots with 500k CTS solid post pots.
Chrome volume knob, Fender amp dial for tone.
Replaced 3 way toggle with a thicker post option, and got a white cap for it.
String retention bar helped eradicate string buzz on D and G strings, as the flat headstock caused problems.
Stained the fretboard ebony. 4 coats Minwax clear satin stain on neck. 4 coats of rattle Rustoleum white satin, 3 coats of Minwax rattle can clear satin on the body.
Found the Mosrite waterslide decals on ebay.
