Default Re: Garrard record player deck identification.

And that was it for the Autoslims. The long-running design had ushered in Garrard's most prosperous era, proving to be reliable, efficient, versatile, stylish and profitable. But in a move intended to reduce production costs even further, it was superceded by a new platform called the Unimech, which will be discussed later. Here, we'll see a few more photos of Autoslim-chassis Garrards. We could really go on, almost forever with them!

Garrard in a Columbia phonograph built by Pye. American makers seemed to think their buyers wanted curved tonearms. Garrard was glad to comply.
AT6 in a British metal base.
Autoslim made for Westinghouse, with their "W" logo.
Autoslim with the platter-shaped instruction sheet, typical for lower-priced models.
745D, a custom AT5P for which the buyer specified the fancy mat from the SL65, and a "Laboratory Series Automatic Turntable" medallion.
