I like it.
I wouldn't even clean this one....i'd leave it as it is. Not all of them need to be polished to within an inch of their lives. Lol.




Can't polish a turd any ways!

To me, if you do a search on web, the most HARD to find, even pictures, is Still the Sharp GX-88.
Evereytime you do a search, the search returns the same photos!

Cheers.

One I have yet to find pix or info on (or on eBay for that matter)...
 
My_Electra_jambox.jpg

 

Found this Electra CT-100 'released in the wild' one evening - poor thing was sitting on its instruction manual. Motor needed some lubricating, battery springs were rusty and a new belt was in order. Plays tapes OK but the recording circuits are pretty much duff.
