500 is a rough estimate price. Certainly negotiable, but i do believe i have a very worthy piece here. I have done extensive reaearch on this, and what i’ve found is that the 1700 series is very rare to find and have- particularly in this fine, outstanding overall condition. The 1200 series is able to be found quite readily and easily, compared to the 1700 series.
It’s not perfect, as it needs a needle and a mat. The cartridge that houses the needle is there, the needle is just missing from it. I do believe that’s why it’s in the exceptional condition it’s in. Once the needle broke, or was removed, it was stored and not used.. for 30some years. It was manufactured between 1979 and 1981.
I have tested everything i can and it all works short of putting a needle to vinyl. I may need to list this on some music enthusiasts site in order to sell. I will ship it, but it won’t be cheap as it weighs probably 15 lbs, and i’d insist to have it fully insured, as i’m sure the buyer would as well.
