1959 Magnavox Concert Grand - rare wood tops
« on: April 22, 2019, 09:23:49 AM »
Up for sale we have a very well preserved vintage tube console. This Magnificent Magnavox is finished in the Danish Modern cabinet styling.

 It is a 1959.

 It is all original and sounds great. The turntable works, but I would suggest a cleaning.

This was the TOTL Magnavox console of the day and is still considered to be one of the best made.

We all know the CG's have climbed in value significantly within the past 2 years.

This unit is in very good cosmetic condition. No chips, scrapes, or anything. Not bad for being 60 years old

You do not find them this original anymore.

 $1500
Loud and Vintage.... any questions?

Nice!
FYI: Just for reference an essentially identical one being sold by the California Historical Radio group just sold a week or so ago for $600, after being reduced in priced one or two times, in an area of high income earners... just sayin'.

I'm wondering if the bloom is off the rose as far as Concert Grands selling for the big money is concerned.  The last couple I've heard of selling did not get asking price. 
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

i'm not concerned if the bottom has fell out of the market, what's the down side?

if I don't sell it, i'll keep it.

i'm not bitter, so please don't read that into my response.

the market has become somewhat saturated, but I just sold my other CG for $1200, but it needed to be restored.

Loud and Vintage.... any questions?

I wouldn't mind having a Danish to go with my other one.  I like the glass lids.  I'm not paying anywhere close to $1200 for one.  Not even half that, with transportation and restoration costs on top of that.  If $1200 is the going rate, I'll get along with what I've got.
