    I have no idea where I got this tremolo bar, but maybe it might work for the Mosrite?

    So a few new updates on the Mosrite, ends up I was misinformed about the date, its actually a 1966! I had a local automotive spray shop refin the back in black, and they matched it perfectly! The guitar has since all been assembled and plays and sounds fantastic, I couldn't be happier. Now for a couple pics:
