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. Heads have been cleaned, but recording quality is not perfect. When 7" reels are being used, they rub on the chasis.
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.
If it doesn't go to new home, I will take it to my tech for a service and sell it along at market price, or keep it.

Includes Sony take-up reel.

The Ampex and Scotch reels are NOT INCLUDED.
See my other ads for reel to reel tapes.

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.
