My first wood horn. I'm so happy that I was able to find this Vic IV with wood horn. Picked it up yesterday and started cleaning it last night. It was a CL find and this is the picture from CL. I'll post more when I get it cleaned up a bit.

I agree with Jerry; the IV is a class act without being ostentatious. A nice "first" wooden horn machine! Congratulations - -

Sorry Steve. Some how when I copied them off of CL, I made that one just a thumb nail and the seller has removed the listing. Here are a couple more of the pictures from the listing though.

I've been working on cleaning it. It belonged to the seller's father and was passed to him about 30 years ago. Has been sitting since then. Most of the nickel has been polished off the tonearm and elbow(years ago I'm sure) but after cleaning all the old stiff grease off the motor gears and regreasing and oiling, the motor runs strong. The cabinet is really nice after cleaning it with Gojo. I was disappointed to find someone (father?) had neatly inscribed his SS# on the underside of the elbow,side of tonearm and on the speed control but I guess that is just part of it's history.

Does the horn fit securely into the elbow looks like the horn is drooping a bit. it is common with mahogany horns.
