    Be sure to check out www.fisherconsoles.com.

    New website.

    99% of information and data supplied by Red.

    I put the web site together using the Dreamweaver web site program.

    It's still a "work in progress".

    Thank you for the "Sticky" status.

    I didn't expect that.

    As I said, the web site is a "work in progress". I put it together and purchased the www.fisherconsoles.com domain name. 99% of the information and data was from Red's web site.

    The web site is an informational site and will not be selling anything.

    Any information I can add will be added. For example, the operating manuals for the Custom Electra II and Custom Electra IV are posted on those pages. If I have time tonight, I will post the service manuals for the Custom Electra I and II. Any photographs I have of my consoles will be posted very soon.

    If anyone has any pictures, manuals, schematics, etc. they want to submit I will post them and the person will receive full credit and acknowledgement for the submission.

    I feel the Fisher Consoles are underated and this web site might help in promoting them.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you.

    The Fisher 401

    I have a fisher console (model # 401) w turntable, cassette player & radio. Everything works and functions well except the radio. The reception needle has moved and I can hear static in the radio stations but before you know it I lose signal.

    What is the problem? By the way....I went to the fisher website & I do not see a picture of my console.

    I went to your website and did not find a console like mine. I have a console model 401. At least that's what it says on the turntable, but the radio says "Fisher Statesman" tune o matic

    First, welcome to AudioKarma!

    The thread you have posted in is about a website, and not about answering questions about specific models.

    Please feel free to start a new thread in the Fisher Forum, and you may ask questions in that thread. If your console has a cassette deck, that would make it a newer one as compared to the older tube models. As always, pictures will help!:yes:

    Thank you for the offer.

    I will start to look over the list this weekend.

    Anything I use will be attributed to you.

    Also, I have added your web site to my links page.

    Wow, Jon - instant Sticky status! I am very pleased with the site so for. I've always felt that my website was a bit clunky - this should be a huge improvement. Also, it's great that you're hosting your own data so you're not reliant on a third-party photo hosting site like mine is.

    The new site has also prompted me to review a lot of the data I've accumulated; identify some errors and add some previously unknown Fisher consoles. I've also begun some serious research into Fisher's earlier mono consoles - so, hopefully, we'll eventually be able to piece together a much broader picture of Fisher's offerings from the Truman and Eisenhower eras.

    Come to think of it, Jon, that might be a great way to divide up the different eras of Fisher consoles: by President. I never thought of looking at them that way but they do sort of fall into general groups by administration. You've got your pre-war FDR "inklings of high fidelity" Philharmonic consoles; your Truman "hi-fi genesis" early Fishers; your Eisenhower "golden years of mono" consoles; your Kennedy "dawn of stereo" consoles; your Johnson "transition to solid state" consoles and your Nixon era "over-the-top" and/or "down-the-drain" consoles.

    Just a thought.

    Any ideas on how to display the information and data are welcome. As more data is added, I will probably have to break up the home page into more then one chart. I don't think visitors like having to scoll left to right.

    Also, I have added Search Engine Meta Tags to the pages in hope that the various search engines will pick up the web site. The site was lauched on October 31, 2010 and so far only www.bing.com and www.yahoo.com (which are becoming one company) has picked it up. Nothing yet from Google. None of the search engines offer any guarantees on whether they will list any web site.

    The Fisher Console web site has been updated to include models from 1966 and 1967. Thanks to Red for the information and data.

    The home page has also been redesigned.

    As always, anyone who makes submissions to the web site such as owners manuals, service manuals, schematics, and photographs will be given full acknowledgement for the submission.

    Over the next few weeks I will be adding various owners and service manuals to the web site.

    Thanks for doing this site and keeping it going. I was able to get the hard to find service manual for my Electra IV.

    I am happy to hear you were able to get the service manual for the Custom Electra IV.

    By chance, tomorrow morning I am picking up a Custom Electra IV in Manhattan (NY) from the original owners! I'm not sure of the cabinet style but since it is being given to me it doesn't matter. I already have the Early American cabinet style.

    The photo of mine can be seen on the web site at:

    http://www.fisherconsoles.com/photographs/custom electra IV photographs.html

    If you ever feel like submitting a photo of your model we will be glad to post it on the photograph page for that model.

    Also, the Owners Manual is available if you need it.

    Of course, all manuals on the web site are FREE for downloading.

    Jonboy, I too have the Early American. Do you feel that the color of your photo is true? Yours seems much lighter and more yellow. The other photos of it seem to look like mine [inside, back] but the outside seems too light. I think I may have seen another light one here before?

    Also I think there was a slight difference with an extra monitor or tape something in some photos compared to mine as well.

    Love Fisher stuff. Have 3 pieces but only one console.
