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.

I remade the graphic for the 443 out of overlaid coloured and opaque A4 acetate.[/color]

Super job!  I never would have picked up on that if you hadn't pointed it out.

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."

Haven't been to the Monroeville store in about a year, but they definitely seemed to have more selection the last time I was there.

Yeah, enough new, sealed stuff that I was able to find two titles that I was happy to have.

Is Bethel Park putting out cards for the new releases rather than putting the vinyl out?   On the one hand, I like that because they can fit twice as much stuff.   OTOH, you have to ask for the record to see if it is a legit version or one of those EU grey market jobbers you mentioned.

As far as I'm aware everything is out in the BP store. Unlike Monroeville, BP puts the "expensive" records in an open box on the counter as opposed to the lock box Monroeville uses. Haven't been to the Monroeville store in about a year, but they definitely seemed to have more selection the last time I was there.

German pressings are usually pretty good.   Like German cars I guess.

Love the jukeboxes, especially the wallboxes! Do you maintain or work on them yourself? I've got a '71 Wurlitzer Zodiac that I brought back from the dead and a '63 Wurlitzer 2700 that needs restored. The 2700 has to go, just don't have the time to work on it.
