I've restored dozens of those German consoles.
They all require extensive labor to make them respectable again.
I'm sure, if it hasn't been done (probably not) that it will be in need of such work.
Due to the labor involved, and its age (around 1962) expect a good tech to charge around $400 or so.
Depending on tubes condition, that can go substantially higher.
And the record changer is even more work, naturally.

The German radios and such seem to go for good prices, however, I'm not into vintage appraisals.

Yeah you would need to love the look of the piece to lay out $400. I'm a farm boy so prefer the Danish wood look...
