It is very rare to find this item to be sold in "As New" condition. I observe no marks or damage to suggest the unit was used. Careful observations of the heads, pinch roller and all other components in the tape path give no evidence of tape residue or wear prior to my brief tests. There is no evidence that the take-up reel, interconnects, tape splicer were removed from packing.

I bought this from the original owner who opened the carton once and only enough to confirm I was getting what I was paying for. It was represented as New and Unused. I never completely unpacked this unit until this week. As I unpacked it, it seemed obvious that I was the first to completely unpack it. I doubt it was ever operated until I tested it this week. I operated this deck for only 10 minutes, long enough to confirm it will play, record, fast forward and reverse. All electronic and mechanical functions work perfect.
Sale includes the original box & all packing material, Owners Manual, original interconnect cables, take-up reel, two hub locks, and tape splicer.
This machine is very heavy and so it will be shipped in its original box & packing material, and I will double box this unit to be certain it arrives just as represented.
