Current market value is CAD$1000 on a serviced deck without any tapes.
Please bear this in mind before making an offer.

I haven't rated it because the scale doesn't fit the condition of this deck.
Physically it's pretty good, I'd give it a 6, or possibly a 7.
Functionally, everything works, but could use service and some TLC.
This was my Dad's deck. He bought it in the late 80's from a family friend. He is now dealing with health issues and has asked me to sell off his collection.
One of the knobs is missing - the one for echo level.
The corners of the dust cover are cracked.
Deck is sold as-is with no warranty expressed or implied.
Reels included are the Sony metal takeup reel, 2 Scotch reels, and 6 Ampex 407 reels.
One of the 407's has a radio show that I recorded about 30 years ago from 54 Rock in Ottawa.
Another one of the 407's has some Jimi Hendrix.

The deck alone weighs 55 pounds. I am willing to ship. Cost of shipping (packing materials and freight) is fixed at $160. Local pickup welcome. Am also willing to meet as far east as Montreal, or as far west as Kingston.
