You are looking at an extremly beautiful example of a classic Garrard 301 Oil Bearing Turntable, serial number 73992. Runs absolutely smooth, stable and noiseless. The whole unit is in a clean and excellent condition. The turntable runs quiet and speed stability is top on. The rubbermat is original and without cuts. This is a 110v or 220V model, so it can be used in many countries throughout the world, but if you are on a 60hz frequency, you would need to change the pulley. This can be purchased on ebay for a few pounds. There are no dings or scratches on the surface, it is totally smooth.
The whole surface looks mint, but I cannot certainly exclude that the top of the TT was new lacquered. If it was, then the job was done professional and perfect. Rivets don´t show signs of replacing, the top color is the same as it is underneath, I can´t see any difference in tone, and on the bottom the paint is original for you see the marks from the sticker. All the red painted screws are in their places. No marks from cleaning systems on the top of TT, this one was gladly fixed to the plinth.
The plinth is made from wood, is a lightweight hollow one and has a cover.
Crafted very good, laquer job is well done but not perfect like an industrial item. Still good for your livingroom. The motorboard is bend in the middle, but it´s not a big deal to cut a new one from plywood. The suspension springs are too weak for the heavy Garrard, you should replace them with stronger ones or do it the Loricraft-Way and use balls. Dimensions of the plinth without the cover: 47x44x11cm. Anyway, I have to send the plinth in an individual parcel, so be aware that shipping costs are a bit more, depending on your destination.
I do accept bank to bank transfer with covered fees at your side (no fees inside europe if your bank supports SEPA) or Paypal, same here, you pay the fees. Of course Audiogon fees are on my side. I shipped a lot of audiogear to all parts of the word and I pack very responsibly. No handling charges, you pay the actual DHL shipping fees and I´ll forward the shipping ID so you can monitor the progress. I always recommend insurance on oversea transactions. Little price for peace of mind. Please notice: feedback review seems not to work correct on Audiogon. Click on "seller information" on top of this page to monitor. Thanks!
