SOLD: Linn LP12 with Mission 774 arm, big price drop

Recommended Posts

Item- as above

Location- Adelaide Hills

Price- 1200

Condition- Excellent

Reason- Floorboards, plus too many TTs

Payment- EFT, Cash, Paypal

More- Very clean with an almost flawless plinth. Some minor marks on the dustcover and the trim strip is lifting slightly at one end. Arm is fitted with a Mission 773 MC cartridge which sadly has no cantilever any longer (long story), might be worth professional attention as it suits the arm perfectly. From what I can gather it's around 1979 vintage and not modified at all. Also fitted with a UK plug, I used it with an adaptor but it could be just as easily rewired.

It must be Christmas! 

This would be great for someone looking to get into Linn sound without the Linn price tag.

Its Valhalla'd, so I'd assume its Nirvana'd. Lid's old. I rekon its newer then 79. Very good buy mate:thumb:

There's a list somewhere with serial numbers and build dates, if you have the motivation to go looking you could narrow it down to the year it was made, but that's not really important I guess, it's old and will get much much older before it dies. You won't buy better for the price.
