Beatles NEMS 1964 Record player, Made in England
The Beatles Record Player. BEATLES record player manufactured for NEMS in 1964. On Sale for Mother’s Day! Those who own them covet them highly. They cost a lot back in 1964 Liverpool, and were a massive status symbol for teenage girls gone Beatle crazy. This item demonstrates the love and care that went into its preservation in succeeding generations to this day. Its has never been abused, only lovingly used and with some careful checks of its instrumentation with those wonderful things called tools, this will run like new. It runs just fine but kinda stretches the music, could mean a new needle, a flat 45 rpm, or an adjustment on the idler wheel. I know that’s all in line with owning and nurturing over time; an important instrument coveted at the greatest turning point of the current history of music. Restoration and preservation and knowledge of the legendary object you will be owning. In light of this great responsibility that I see the next owner taking on I will only offer this at a true collectors price, expensive. You’d better want it bad enough to pay for the honour and never forget you would now hold a chapter of rock history memories in your hands. This is considered by most collectors to be one of the ultimate pieces to own of all commercial Beatles memorabilia. The 4-speed 17-1/2″ x 10″ x 6 NEMS record player was manufactered in 1964 and only 5000 were made, with very few surviving. So far, only a few near mint units have turned up – the majority that have surfaced are in worn condition. The colorful 20″ x 11″ x 7 packing box is even rarer, only a handfull are known to exist. An owners manual was also included. The serial numbers were on a piece of paper attached to the inside lid, and in most cases this is missing. This record player does not have the box or serial number. This is one of the nicest condition players known to exist. Adding; Folks, this one is it! The winner of the all time best record player I have ever offered for sale, and it even edges the one I owned myself in 1982, which before now… Why’s It Rare? The four-speed NEMS Beatles Record Players (Model: 1000) were manufactured in 1964. The date places the Record Player amongst some of the earliest pieces of commercially produced Beatles memorabilia items. There’s a limited supply, because it’s estimated that only 5,000 record players were produced. So, finding one in near-mint condition, fully operational, and with all its original parts intact (especially the serial number tag) is extremely rare.
