Thorens Td 124 Vintage Turntable - Awesome For Sale

Thorens Td 124 Vintage Turntable - Awesome

I am a furniture guy — the last time I spun a record was probably 1985. Recently I found myself at an estate sale for a gentleman who had acquired some fabulously wonderful (and expensive) furniture over his lifetime. One of the pieces that really caught my eye was this gorgeous 6-foot-long mid century modern record cabinet from the late 50s or early 60s. Mid century furniture is a favorite of mine, and I wanted to turn this piece into a bar, so I ended up buying it.
This turntable was mounted in the record cabinet, and just out of curiosity (because everything else this dude had was soexpensive), I took a look online to see what this Thorens TD 124 was all about. WOW, there's a lot of information on the web about this model! And I learned that one of the renowned experts in restoring Thorens TD 124s, James Campbell, works not too far from my home.
I sent Jim an email, explaining what I had and asking if he would take a look at it. Jim graciously offered to have a look, and was very enthusiastic about my find. He plugged it in and showed me how everything worked (the engineering on this turntable is quite impressive!). While the turntable is fully mechanically functional in all speeds, strobe light, clutch, etc., it doesn't spin at the correct speeds, which is evidently common after long periods of disuse. Jim said that it should be reconditioned, but recommended that I sell it "as is" since a lot of the people who are into these turntables are perfectly capable of doing that work themselves. Overall, he felt that it was in very nice condition. (He was also super impressed with the Thorens RMG-212 tonearm and Ortofon SPU G/T cartridge that were on the turntable - check my other listings, as these are also up now!)
There's a part of me that would like to keep this turntable (it really is gorgeous, and I love anything with over-the-top engineering), recondition it, and hear some of the unbelievable sound reproduction it is evidently capable of. But I don't have any vinyl anymore. And I really don't need another hobby, so this fantastic turntable will be making someone else (possibly you) very, very happy.
