notes:  After taking these photos and looking them over in detail I have determined that this recorder will require more money invested for replacement parts than its final value will be after a restoration.   This  unit does have some redeeming features.  Mainly, it is saved from the scrap heap due to its good external cosmetics.  Internally, it doesn't look nearly as good.  Status: to be stored indoors for future reference.
