Here’s something I found pretty interesting. A Victrola 120 with an extra electric pick-up located in Lincoln NE. (I won’t be buying this because I already have a VV-111 i’m happy with, plus it’s overpriced and nobody will take me to Lincoln anyway.)

It may have been converted into an Electrola. But it’s one of the better conversations I’ve seen. And easily reversible to bring back to normal.

The damage done to the record compartment doors and surrounding wood was probably due to a missing key or seized lock. Even though I have keys to several of my machines, I never lock them just in case the lock gets stuck.

I'm not sure about the "conversion." Not my cup of tea. Cabinet looks like mahogany that has been stripped/refinished on the outside only. Not worth $1000 or a drive to Lincoln to take a look.
