Really! A 1940's Red Label Columbia played on a Victor VTLA XX? I didn't even want to listen to the audio.

This is a re-finish job. And as can be seen from several other posts of other XX's on this thread, NOT a restoration-which would bring it back to the way the machine originally would have looked. Another of these scarce machines tricked out with shiny gold leaf and and maroon hued wood. They didn't know how to restore it and they don't know what to play on it...

I should have looked at the video on my desktop before chiming in, (it looked fine on my phone). Still, at least it's not a new bar or whatever. There is still a VV-XX under the bright gold and burgundy. Maybe the color is better in person.

Amen! Check out the underside of the lid at about 40 sec. into the video, and compare with the adjacent re-finish. They didn't even match the color properly. Botch job!
