Dana's Diary, Monday 1/12/12

Alot of people ask if I play guitar. The answer is yes, but not very well. I was always to intimidated by the great guitar players I grew up around.

For example:

I was about 6 years old and was playing Barbie dolls in the apartment that was attached to the Mosrite Factory in Bakersfield, CA. About this time a big black hand reached down and grabbed my Ken doll, and said "Would you still love me if I was black Barbie?". Now you have got to understand I had never met a black man before. I looked up and ran out of the room screaming. I grabbed my Dad's (Semie Moseley's) leg and did not let go the whole time my Dad took this man's order.

Well, that man was Jimi Hendrix, and the guitar he ordered was a 6/12 String Double Neck and is now on display at Cleveland's Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame. I kinda played Barbie dolls with Jimi Hendrix.

This story was the inspiration for my 6/12 String Double Neck re-issue 60th Anniversary Model. I hope you like it.

Mosrite Forever,

Dana Moseley

 

 

The Beginning

Sunday, November 27, 2011 - 16:09

I thought for a long time to try and figure out how I wanted to start my diary and decided a good place to start would be the beginning.

A few months ago I received a package left to me by my Grandmother.  I was very surprised by what I found.

In late November 1956 my father (Semie Moseley) was sketching the birth announcement of his first born.  You can tell by the attached photos, Dad expected a boy.  You can also tell by the attached photo he was just as happy with his little girl, me.

This is where the story truly begins.

Mosrite Forever,
