Much better than these nasty reproductions you see, id rather have one of those beautiful originals and for just £10 you can't argue with that! I think not

Ha ha ha

You have to consider that this is the rare glass bottomed Varaphone, which are normally seen only on glass bottom tourist boats in Silver Springs, Florida...

If I had a Garrard No.20 motor (the favourite motor for British built portables) in a machine of much earlier appearance I would want to conceal it, not display it behind glass. Nevertheless the machine sold for £353. It is difficult to imagine how or why.

It has tracking so accurate that is comparable only to an EMG. Look at the angle of the soundbox to the record but I don't think he cares he made £353 and he didn't even have to try to pass it off as an original just used the power of clever wording and prayer.
