So I've had a couple of rented places over the last 18 months but now have finally bought a house with my girlfriend. So now I've finally got some space and somewhere I can really call home. Moved in a few days ago and have been sorting stuff like a madman...got a bit of order and a lot of stuff sorted. This is the set up in the front room though there will be another 40 set up in the big loft room when it's done. But this is the progress so far :-)

You should hear it...it totally kicks ass. Not quite finished yet, gotta do final paint on the side panels and put material in the speaker grills to stop light leaking. But I'm really chuffed with it :-)

"WOW" is my first thought! :thumbsup:   The Jukebox looks fantastic and that chair is a bit of a gem too.  I can hardly wait to see the room 'settled' with lighting, a bar in the corner............................... :-D  :lol: .  Seriously, good work! :clap:

Wow that's cool, lets see a pic! I've got another Rock-ola in my work room lol. Yeh I'm a bit obsessed with weird lighting like neon etc. This is just a few from my collection, I've got about 60 in total, some are waiting for the loft room to be fixed up so they can go back on display

Here's a pic of my Rockola, doesn't look as cool as yours does all lit up but I'm pretty sure they're identical, I guess great minds think alike!    I also have a Seeburg Discotheque in the same room.   Seeing yours lit up in there really makes me want to get my house's wiring sorted so I can have these all plugged in at once.

I'm going to see the quality of the first one that shows up, I may order another. I wonder what a custom Lasonic sign would cost? :-O

That is an awesome price.

 

I need to keep my eyes open for local pick ups.

 

Did they even sell Schlitz in the UK?
