This is a classic JBL product from around 1959. It has been well preserved and has all of the original speaker/crossover components. The original wax seals are still present on the 275 driver screws and the D-130A woofers appear to have the original cones. Sound is very clear and there are no unwanted noises (buzzes, rattles, etc). I believe that the cabinet was never opened until I took the pictures.

I have included a lot of detailed pics that show the overall good condition of the cabinetry as well as the minor flaws that are consistent with a piece that is 50 years old. Before the unit is sold, there will be some attempts made to improve some of the cosmetic flaws in the wood veneer. It will not be perfect, but it should be somewhat better than what is depicted in the photos.

The dimensions are 73 11/16" wide X 30" tall X 22 1/2" deep (from center of curved panel.

This large and heavy so local pickup is preferred. I can also crate and ship the speaker system at the buyer's expense. I have much experience at worldwide shipping of large speakers, so you can be sure that it will arrive in the condition you see in the pics. Flash photography tends to accentuate even the slightest flaws. None of the flaws look as pronounced in person as they do in the photos.

E-mail me with any questions and I will do my best to answer them.
