So, I finally have one of these G-7000 beauties on my bench for a refresh, it is working, but is very very tired and needs a good going over. It belongs to another AK member, and he said he wants me to 'do what I would do to it, if it were mine'. Well, I think hardly anyone can pay me enough to do as much as that. However I will give this unit my usual level of care and attention, when it's finished I promised him it will be the best sounding G-7000 north of Watford Gap. Here is the driver board - minus the 4 big local filtering capacitors, glue not too bad, but as usual it has taken its toll of components on this board. More later, and as the restore progresses.
