I am a record player fanatic! There were so many makes and styles that the options are almost endless. As usual, I was cruising eBay when SHAZAM, I came across this rare 1956 Crescent 45 record player.
This unit is farm fresh. It needs some cleaning up and a servicing to make it fully functional again.
I love the slanted design with the metal hairpin legs on the front. I also dig the atomic green fabric with the gold diamond accents on the front.
This unit has a speaker underneath. This is what drove the slanted design of this record player.
I will use some light grit sand paper to clean up all the gold accents and paint them with the 24K gold spray paint carried by Michael’s.
The grey material on the outside of the case is in good shape, but will need some freshening up.
I will reach out to my faithful repair guy Justin from Stellar Electronics. I know he will fix her up!
Here is the original ad showing this little gem towards the bottom.
For all of you who noticed the record in the background, it is a Les Baxter 10″ 33&1/3 album. This cover is so fantastic and came out at the same time the player did.
