This jukebox is complete - everything is there, it lights up, it accepts coins and starts to do things when you make a selection, but doesn't play.  Needs a "tune up" / some TLC.   


Located in Palm Springs, CA. 


$450 OBO

My sister had the identical machine from 1957.  I'm pretty sure she sold it.  It had sat out on her covered patio for a while, and when she shared that information with a repair guy, he stopped what he was doing and put his tools away.


The Seeburgs are interesting in the way the selection is made by depressing the letter and number keys simultaneously.  My Rock-Ola has you press one and then the other.


The Seeburg is a really beautiful machine, and I would wager that playing the records vertically makes them last longer.

Looks like a nice clean and complete unit. I have one just like it that's patiently awaiting reassembly. The L100 was produced in 1957. Not 1958. The 1958 101 used the same cabinet also being a 100 selection but had a different color scheme. Perhaps this is an early 58 which carried over the 57 styling? I don't know if that was done.

1957 was the first year Seeburg tried printed circuit boards. There were problems with them because they were thin and warped. 1958 did away with PCB's and went back to the earlier component chassis. Seeburg didn't try PCB's again until sometime in the 60's.

Here's a pic of a 1958 model 101 for comparison.

Thanks for clarifying, Ken.  I was wondering if 1958 units were indeed identical to the '57s.  And yes, it was the likely damage to the PCB from damp conditions that prompted the repair guy to state that the problem wasn't anything he could fix on site, or quickly, or cheaply.   The expression on his face spoke volumes.

I do believe reproduction PCB's are available.

Fast forward to today-Circuit boards can still be a problem with high power tube amps-G- fiddle and Hi-Fi.The heat conducted from the tube pins thru the sockets can burn the board traces.Hard wiring is best in this case.That is a good reason why original older MC275 amps are preferred over the new versions-the new ones have the PCB' and have problems.McIntosh will fix them under warrantee.This is even with new fiberglass boards.And the HV can cause them to arc or break down.And in the old days-old boards like in the jukebox-were laminate-paper and resin-these break down even more easily and absorb moisture hastening the process.
