Akai GX-747dbx - Black color with original take-up reel, hub adapters, and bound copies of the Owners Manual and Service Manual. Custom box with foam included.
This reel-to-reel is in very good condition. It has been recently serviced at a repair shop that specializes in reel-to-reels and vintage stereo equipment. All major functions have been tested and work well. The heads are in good condition. I can send more pictures of the heads via e-mail.
The exterior is clean and the front of the unit is in good overall shape. There are some small nicks and scratches as shown in the pictures - I included close-ups of each I could find. There may be a few more minor defects not shown that I did not see or that I could not fit into the number of pictures available, but most of them are there.
There are two scuffs on one of the side panels - one of the scuffs is on the lower edge of one of the side panel as shown in the picture and one small on towards the top. The rest of the side panels are in very good condition without any other major defects to note. Please see pictures for condition.
This item is guaranteed to be fully functioning and not dead on arrival.
The box with custom foam is in good condition - the foam was cut to fit the GX-747 - it has space below to hold two 10.5" reels and cut-outs for the manuals on the top. The box itself is in good shape but has one dent on one side of the cardboard, but is in great condition otherwise.
This listing includes:
Akai GX-747dbx Tape Deck
Akai Hub Adapters for 10.5" Reels
Bound copies of Owners Manual and Service Manual

NOTE: The original box for this GX-747 is available separately. The custom foam box protects the item better so I am including that one in this listing.
The Maxell Reel shown is NOT included- it is shown for demonstration purposes only.
Item is sold as-is with no returns unless item arrives non-functioning or significantly not as described.
Please not that shipping is more expensive due to the large size of the custom foam box. I will double box this item and only charge actual shipping plus materials.
