Seller's Comments and Description:

Just one of the beautiful bases that are usually impossible to find(this week there are 3 to make a liar out of me haha).  last one we sold a year ago went for $1100 usd but we would prefer to sell locally to collectors here in australia as a first preference. pls dont ask about availabilty of the units when you see the video, most are going to be used in a museum atmosphere but we will from time to time list the odd double up. before this vieo was made, there were over 300 cbs in stock so there will be announcements from time to time, but as you can imagine, its taking time to check tune and repair any unit that comes across our bench. i have two of these console vi units and a 3rd which is being kept for our collection.  all units are in good condition, as the chap in perth mentioned, these units are very hard to find and their is always a degree of restoration for the radios to be done,it essentially they work aok.  sold as is, if i had time to do a full restoration, i can tell you, they would not be being sold for $900 as they are pulling $1500 fully restored.  so sold working but there may be litle things to do in both cosmetics and small electronic issues.  essentially, all work the same point made from perth, these radios are far from new, so expect a few marks, but the one I have for our collection came with original boxes and due to its new status, sold to me for just over $2000.  so this will give you the idea of what a mint unit will sell for.  i have two for sale, once gone, im unlikely to see anymore.  once again, sold as is, yes they work but their is always little things you can improve.  for example, i am having mahogany sides putting on my personal unit, just one of the things you can do to make the sbe console VI units look fabulous.  just get friendly with your local kitchen maker and he can knock some up in a very small amount of time.  i have always felt the iron on laminate is not the way to make the console vi excel, so theres always a way to preserve what is a piece of history.  can ship australia wide, sold as is, but you wont be disappointed.(photo for example only) units being sold are only due to me having one perfect in the box unit myself and having a spares radio at hand,otherwise, there would be no way one of these would escape me.   big thank you to you know who down in melbourne, still got a load to get through but your equipment is just exquisite.  200 plus radios to go and we will get through them. so many never sells, just amazing :-)  see attached video to see what i am talking about.
