I am the first owner of this Vintage cartridge Grace Ruby. I bought it long time ago, I change the tips for a original one and after I bought a Linn Troika for my Naim Aro Tonearm. So this cartridge have been carefully store for more than 15 years. All original. The tip is in good condition, the cantilever is in good shape too. I made it recently install on a RB301 by a pro and the technicien told me that this cartridge is in good shape. I played it for 10 minutes and it is fine.
