Hello and thank you for looking at my listing of the Technics SL-1700MK2 Quartz Lock Semi Automatic Turntable. This turntable was recently serviced. The mechanics parts were lubed and all belts were replaced. Therefore all features work such as the auto return, the cueing and speed accuracy. The strobe light works as well. The turntable looks great and only has a few minor scratches. One is on the front lower left of the black metal base (see pic). The original dust cover was buffed out and polished and looks great. There are only a few light scratches on the right site of the dust cover. The turntable also has all of its original feet and are are intact, look and work perfect. I am including 2 cartridges. One is the Pickering V-15/ATE-3 with its stylus in good condition. It comes with a new Technics headshell. The other cartridge is an Ortofon 2M Red with only 2 hours of playtime on the stylus. It comes installed in a LP Gear HD Headshell. Information on this headshell can be found here: http://www.lpgear.com/product/OR2MREDHDH.html
I will ship the Technics turntable professionally with the best care. The turntable has its original transport screws to lock down the platter. The tonearms's lock is still intact and working. I will separate the platter and put it at the bottom of the box. Then secure the counterweight separately. I will then pack each cartridge separately. Then I secure the tonearm with a twist tie so it cannot pivot during shipping. I will also pack the dust cover separately. I only use new heavy duty shipping boxes and large bubble wrap for packing (no peanuts). I am selling the turntable for $325.00 plus FedEx Ground Shipping at 30 LBSThank you for looking at my listing and please ask if you have any questions.
