SOLD - Garrard 301 turntable in exceptional original condition - eBay auction
Here is an original unmolested Garrard 301 (serial number 60786 - oil bearing) which has been in its original plinth/enclosure since it was first bought. The condition of the platter (where the black sides are often faded and pitted) is like new. The black is perfect and the detail around the strobe marks is exceptional.
Condition of the upper cream face is excellent with almost no marks whatsoever. There is one small enamel chip at the very back of the deck and some small marks around the mounting screw holes. The overall condition of this item is very good indeed, and almost certainly a consequence of having little use and almost being kept in a fully enclosed wooden case.
I have powered this player and it is brilliantly silent and holds all speeds consistently. I have had the power cable replaced with a modern cable with integral earth for safety. I have not serviced this item though.
I have all the original mounting screws and washers, plus the sprung suspension components too, as shown in the pictures.
There are considerably more pictures on my website.
The unit will be supplied as shown, mounted in the original wooden base panel to ease packaging. The original full enclosure will NOT be included, but if that interests you (including the original Goldring arm) you are welcome to have that within the cost, but it would have to be collected - again, photographs on my website. If not, then you will receive everything in these main pictures and no more. I am happy to post this worldwide... please contact me for a price if your country is not listed.
The photographs show the actual item being sold. I use a studio to show the items in as much detail as possible.
