Any idea what a G80 AMI (NMI?) would be worth these days? Made in NSW.

The records load up ok, but the sound doesn't work. Seems there is a pot on the top that someone has hacked up, but it could be anything.

Thought it'd be a groovy thing to have for those '60s dance parties I often have :lol

looks like they are worth 5k if someone buys it :)

from what i understand about 50's jukes (which probably isn't much) the collectability factor is in the following order:

1. Wurlitzers with daylight second
2. Seeburgs
3. Rock Olas
4. Others

This is the first 50's AMI I've seen. I have a 90's AMI Rowe CD juke which is awesome in terms of sound quality and power so they make good machines. The ebay pics look like the seeburg R type which is a real classic look (ala happy days).

It might not be worth 5k but i reckon you'd easily get 2 or 3 if you found the right buyer.

i have personally seen a 1931 Wurlitzer sell for $25,000.00 aus and that was like 12 years ago.

i still got a picture of her , she was restored and god she was beautiful.

il shoot up a pic as soon as i get my hands on a scanner.

Yep just like that one, only no sound as such. Seems its low on the collectable list. I'm guessing a valve amp setup too?

Anyway he want $1.5k for it. Not sure on it yet bit sizeable for my little pad. It'd be awesome to fill it up with Chuck Berry or something thou. :cool:
