I bought this in 1978 and have not used it for about 15 years, just started it up today and it works like new. Great older system!.




I brough this model in the 70s when it first came out.
it was around $500+ at the time, anyway i loved it but
ran into hard time and we can go from there to this.
Im looking to buy another 1 if any1 knows where i
can get one please let me know. OSC...

I have one of these in my garage, looks/works like new. still in original box! text me an offer, i am located in stockton, ca and have no problem shipping. it's last use was about 2 yrs ago so it may need a tune up, but probably the cleanest one out for sale at this time. call or text 407 9twotwo 71 two 5.

Cheers. Is it possible you still have the deck? Best regards, mg.
