Lenco gl59/88 for sale

Unread post by Vinyl-ant » Sun Oct 21, 2018 12:06 pm

After several more arguments with she who must be obeyed about the amount of turntables I have it has been decreed that this deck has to be sold.
Not particularly happy, but in the interests of my own physical safety, i have agreed to let this one go..... Very Reluctantly.....

I would rather keep the project arm, so I will offer it with and without.

Without the arm I would want £325, with the arm £675.

I'll make up a new arm board and fit another arm if someone wants it without the arm and has something else they would want putting on it

It has been completely rebuilt from the ground up as can be seen from the thread entitled 'build your own g88', motor, bearing, idler ect are all perfect now.

I am very reluctant to courier it, I would much much rather it was collected if it does sell.

And I would much rather anyone interested came and listened to it.

If so, system is benedict audio hothead phono stage, passive pre, pass f5 power amp and big 15" fane sealed box speakers.

If anyone is interested let me know. For pics see the build your own g88 thread.

Cheers ant

Bargain without arm, your hand should be bitten off. If i didn't have the G99 I would.

It has had alot of work put into it, I'm just abit miffed that its got to goto soon after I finished it.
But she is kind of right I suppose, and I also suppose that she has something in mind for the money if it does go....

It was a fifty year old shed that wasn't likely to turn again, now it's not, and I like that, giving some enjoyment again after all these years
