Picked this up on here a little while ago. Have since purchased the one below with a dodgy left channel for a good price, have now convinced myself to sell this to fund the repair as I don't really need 2...

Overall condition can be described as works but needs cleaning up (both cosmetically and electronically).
Electronically - Everything 'works' ie. all ins/outs etc. (though don't have anything to test tape functions...) and sounds great, however everything creates some 'noise' when turning/moving front components. Volume and bass are is largely free from this, treble does it with every touch. and everything else is somewhere between the two. When you are not moving things around it it is perfectly listenable. The contacts at back also need cleaning up.
Cosmetically - Veneered panels have some damage, worst of which is a big chunk pictured, they are easily removable though, there is some light rust to the top, and the knobs/switches are dirty.
My plan was to open it up and give all the pentiometers, front panel, contacts etc. a decent clean, bin the side panels and spray the enclosure matt black with Hammerite or similar.
I paid £80 based on a quick viewing.
I think £60 (now £45) is fair now I have spent a bit longer looking at/fiddling with it.
