Good working condition with some cosmetic wear. A highly sought after audiophile turntable, built simply and solidly. Belt and stylus have relatively low hours on them (replaced recently). There is wear on the gold finish including what appears to be a touch-up job on the tonearm. Two of the self-adhesive feet are missing. The ground wire could use a connector (I simply wrapped the bare wire end around the grounding screw on my receiver without any problems). Pictures show all the relevant wear and tear. A great-sounding and functioning workhorse of a piece, I used this as my main turntable for years and it has never faltered.
