Default Re: Arkansas Radiogram on Gumtree.

Looks very nice and complete with all its trim and key.

This model has been asked for more than once in recent months, so looks like a good example to get if you live close enough and if you're prepared to pay that price.

Some confusion regarding the turntable/deck type and no picture of that area. The deck is the part that's likely to need the service in one of these and the original cartridge isn't very stereo compatible (if still fitted), but probably still works - and they do decode the two channels.

Does it come with all that drink and has the weight of it all caused the cabinet to flex and crack the mirror? Something to check if you were going to buy it, but the mirror is a standard flat square, so in theory should be reasonably easy to replace if necessary.

I think you'll find that is a later transistorised version.

You're right. It has the newer round push buttons rather than the older piano key types.
