Nice cosmetic condition- some minor scratches here and there, but it is pretty clean for 17 years old. Face is pretty clean. Has the handles. I have probably tested it for 20+ hours and it works fine. Tubes have been upgraded to Amperex Bugle Boys (made in Holland). I have a PDF of the manual I can email you as well.
The less than perfect:
No remote control / original packaging. The tray is noisy when it changes discs, though I believe this is a common issue and that it needs some lube / grease and TLC to get it quiet again. Maybe a belt replacement? In any case, these things are best left for the new owner who has the experience, time, and patience to do it correctly. There is a small .5-1" scratch at the rear of the cover and one crosspiece of the ventillated portion of the cover is slightly bent. These are shown in the photos.
I am asking $425 plus actual shipping. I have experience shipping expensive guitars, bikes, etc, so I know the drill and will pack with extreme care. My ebay handle is "fenderheavy" if you want to check out my feedback.
Local pickup is always fine / preferred- I live in Sonoma County, CA. PM me if you are local and want to check it out. Also, I am more than happy to have any forum member over to audition the player and have a beer.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
