I've included a YouTube link below, of this actual record player in working order, to give you an idea of its sound and appearance.
Hardly used, though it has light wear. With some fine surface scratches on the lid.
That you'd expect to find with a 50 year old. Overall though it is in superb condition! The only main cosmetic defect is on a section of the lid.There is a slight crackle effect. On about a quarter of the grey smoky lid. Goodness knows how this came to be, as it's been kept safely boxed away for many years, away from light & heat.
(please see photos, I've tried to give the clearest impression of this) This is only superficial, the plastic is still perfectly smooth, it might be a film within the plastic maybe? As you can see this. Is not obvious at all in most lights, I didn't even notice until I closely examined, it does not in any way compromise its great looks, tested functionality and great sound quality, but I wanted to bring this to your attention. The plug has been changed from a two pin European plug to a three pin UK plug.
