    I think the outside photo of my Early American is probably lighter then the unit really is. It's just the way the sun hit it. The other photos are probably closer to the real outside color. I have about 10 photos of the unit but only posted 3 on the web site. Let me know if you need more information.

    By the way, the other Custom Electra IV I picked up has the Modern Cabinet. Photos are posted on the web site.

    The website is fantastic! I lost myself there for quite a while looking at every photo I could find of the superb vintage cabinets.

    Fisher President VII

    Thanks for posting your links on vintage stuff. I have handling my Mom's estate which includes a Fisher President VII console my Dad bought new in 1962. It has been stored unused for about 20 years in Anaheim California. All the orignial components are still in the unit. The Gerard turntable and reel-to-rell. I am not sure if it still is in working condition. The walnut cabinet is dusty but cleaned up great. Attached is a photo.

    The service manuals and schematics have been added for the Fisher R-200 tuner and the Fisher 400-CX-2 pre-amp. The tuner service manual is complete and the pre-amp has the schematic, parts list, and tube layout pages.

    They are listed under the Fisher Regent II 6000 page.

    Basket case 1962 Fisher Executive

    So I popped and finally bought this Fisher Executive carcass. The photos online were much better than when it arrived. Finish had raised a little. I'm in the process of using 0000 steel wool and Restor-a-finish to lay the finish back down properly. If it doesn't turn out well, I'll remove the top layer of lacquer and apply some walnut stain to even out the finish and then reapply another layer of lacquer. If I would have known how this unit was treated, I probably wouldn't have purchased. :scratch2:Apparently the seller cannibalized the console for it's 800C. I knew this when I purchased it. They left the Garrard Type A and the Ampex 1250 R2R.

    My main question is, do I try and hunt down an 800C for this unit or do I go a little more custom and just use my Marantz 2325 in its space until a later date. I'm new to the whole "posting" on Audiokarma so please forgive if I haven't posted correctly.

    I was about to say I had sent an email to Jonboy55 on Sunday, along with TheRed1, but hadn't heard anything back. Didn't expect to really. Jon's post above answered the question.
