Thanks again.

This was the original eBay photo


The graphic was in a sorry state and I had to repair a crack in the grill.

Fortunately, there was a retaining strip top and bottom  which holds all the separate pieces of acetate firmly.

The record card insert came from "Victory Glass" At first they said they hadn't any, but I found the part number in the service manual, so they came back to me and  then said they'd found seven.
I bought two as they had a minimum charge and put they other on e-Bay, it was bought by an enthusiast in Malta. Victoria glass I doubt will have any left now as they bought all the original spares when Rock-Ola folded.

My camera doesn't pick up the purple very well it looks too white.

Thanks for the welcome.

I'll listen to any good tune played/sung well.

My preferences are "old fashioned modern jazz," big band classics, some contemporary jazz singers, vintage pop, Motown.
I subscribe to a Yamaha dedicated electric piano board, where we link our efforts, for others to comment on. I've got about 200 recordings on "Box"

I'm not that good, I like to use the jazz chords.

Thanks for the kind words.
Both boxes I bought on eBay several years ago.
Both were in reasonable working order and had been in separate  private hands for over 20 years, just needed a good clean and a lube job. I replaced all the fluorescents and obtained a "new old stock" graphic for the 468 and a "new old stock" record card insert for the 443. "Because everything goes blue after a time."
I remade the graphic for the 443 out of overlaid coloured and opaque A4 acetate.
