I had it professionally stripped, dipped and powder coated by a local company, only cost about £30! :-)

Full casing done too, not just the surface...

Yep, they do.
I'm thinking of doing a Pioneer PL-117 Sunburst, like the Gibson Les Paul!

Even an Audio Technica LP-120 in candy apple red, blue or black would be something to see...Why should all the low-end stuff like the Crosleys get all the good designs and colors??? :?

And if any of those get made, I'm sure we'd ALL like to see 'em! :D

I got this because the dials reminded me of a tach and speedometer! :lol:

That's quite an unusual Panasonic there, ethorn66...While not the best, it certainly is one of their more interesting models...They're fun to mess around with in any case...I think my man Chris had an affinity for this Crosley radio for the same reason!

Hi VM! , I know of one guy who took two with him when he emigrated to Australia!, and I believe there's a couple of owners on this very forum ...

They often crop up on ebay, sometimes for silly prices like this one ... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JBE-SERIES-3 ... SwkyNa1wPq ... £750 might be stretching it a bit??

Since we’re doing colors, the turntable itself is not unusual, but the color is. It started out a very ugly mottled black. I painted it with a rattle can labeled Safety Red. It came out very orange instead. But I like it!

I like it too regardless of the paint job, that's a sweet Mitsubishi table! The color just ads some personality!
I like your record weight also! =D>
Go Hurricanes!🌀😁

Like that SpruceMoose! :-)

Also ethorn66 - you really need to pursue this idea of Sunburst (as mentioned above). ;-)

Ideally I’d like a Houston Aeros puck. Yes, I’m old...

And I agree about the sunburst idea. Go for it!
