Bought a Mint Technics 1200 Mk2 turntable !
 
Well, I've been looking for the longest time for a mint Technics 1200 MK2 in silver.
Finally someone emailed me last week and said they just got one for sale.
The story goes, the guy who sold it to me works for a local electronics store.
He got the turntable from a local Church, which they didnt need any longer.
The table hasnt been hardly used - I guess they only used it for special occasions or on any given Sunday.. LoL.
Anyways, from the serial number, it looks to be made in 1986.
Like I said this thing is near mint ! I would rank it a 9/10. It has some very minot scratches on the dust cover probably from wiping dust off of it. The table has no nicks anywhere !
It came with an old skool Stanton 500 MKII cartridge.

Anyways, on to some pics. ;-)

Great score Mate! Certainly hard to find one in that condition these days!
I hope you will get many hours of enjoyment from it in the future!

Some new pics with the Stanton D50e elliptical stylus on.
I have around 50 hours play on it, so its broken in.
The detail on this with Brubeck's Time out is bliss !
