Does the Model 50 Mk II fall under the "Autoslim" series, or the "Unimech" series? I saw a Model 50 Mk. II plinth for sale for a reasonable price, but I won't get it if it won't fit my player.Any plinth for the Autoslim-chassis Garrard record changers or single players can be used with an AT6 Mk II. Most if not all of the Unimech model plinths can be used, too; on some, the dust cover may interfere with the AT6 counterweight if a heavy cartridge is used.

Sounds Spanish, which would make sense as the seller is in Spain. The plinth, as well as the sides and back of the dust cover, are wood, while the top and front of the dust cover are smoke colored plexiglas. Looks to be a nice, sturdy plinth.
Are there any decent cartridges that will fit the headshell, that won't break the bank? I'd prefer a non-magnetic, if a decent quality ceramic or other non-moving magnet/variable reluctance type is available, as I would like to use it without having to use a pre-amp.

So, on THAT note, what would be a good cartridge to use that isn't a highly expensive audiophile-grade cartridge? I just want to enjoy my record collection, from 100+ year old 78RPM's to 1980's LP's and 45's, and maybe, eventually, transfer them to digital format.
