Koetsu Urushi Blue Made in Japan with original box 100-150 hours use One owner. This item was my Dad's and was only used by him. It was given to me but I do not own a record player and will not use. I would like to see it go to a good home and where it will get the use it deserves. This is a high quality item and is in pristine condition. I am including some microscopic pictures taken of the tip as well as some regular photos of the condition and look of the item.
