Ah - another one of those few exported 8000s !

The dust cover looks original to me ; japanese 8000s and 6000s with the thin Resinamic base (like all those UK samples) have their 'cover slightly smoked and hinged. Same model in everything.


[EDIT]
Serial is #600 029.

hehe, that's mine... much cheaper than the one on ebay UK, and with tonearm (albeit not the best one I have to say upon reception).

Indeed a nice smoking color cover. Both cover and lacquer are super mint, but now I really want/need to find a decent PUA tonearm.

...single-tonearm "sample" base without handles... the most coherent, beautiful, TTS-8000 design.
