certainly looks very nice but is it worth 4 grand?

Yes nice isn't it,

I feel the BIN is a tad optimistic which makes me wonder what the reserve will be?

I wonder if the arm is available as an Ortofon part unmodified?
or are they old arms that Shindo modify

It's an old arm I believe,

Shame on me is, I threw one of these arms away before I go into vinyl.
The counter weight was broken and it looked rubbish. So off to the tip it went.

Hindsight is not so wonderful sometimes, I could have easily made a nice shiny new weight on the lathe !! :oops:

there's very little on the web about them so they must go back a few years,

it's sad that apart from the 3012 there's very few 12" arms available

Thanks Will,
I've stuck $600 on it and it's not met the reserve,

Next question is, what's it worth?

I reckon that will make the best part of £500 - £750 if not more. Nice arm!!

Oh, nice, go on then Will, do you still have my add?
Ta,

I think this one is a tad over priced? it's a 9".

He has some interesting valves though,

Philip, need any spare PT15's?

There are some close ups here
http://members.myactv.net/~je2a3/ortdiy.htm

It looks very similarly constructed as my AT1503

I'll have to see how the bidding goes, I'm chasing down a rather nice lathe at the mo....!!!
