GE Console?
« on: July 11, 2018, 07:37:30 AM »
I have a line on what I believe to be a 1967 GE C443 console.  Cabinet looks nice and it has a reel-to-reel tape in it.  Does anyone know anything about these?  Information seems to be pretty scarce and if they are not that good, I won't bother.

I can't really tell from the pictures.  GE didn't supply their own?

He who hesitates is lost.  Sometimes.  Other times, he gets a better price.

Another one turned up today. Same model. Says like new. No photos. They are asking $350. The last one was $100 obo. I was going to offer them $50. No way I'm paying $350.

Never hurts to make an offer.

I made my offer, and the woman said that someone is picking it up tomorrow morning for the asking price. Oh well.

There will be another, or maybe a netter one.  Patience is a virtue.  I got caught up in an online auction once and learned my lesson about the gotta-have mindset.

The one you are supposed to have will fall into your lap.  You will have no choice other than to take it.  I can tell you that from recent experience.  The harder you look, the fewer like the ONE you want there is out there.  Stop looking and it will literally follow you home.  Good luck in your search.   :)
