We are opening the doors to the showroom again (although it is strictly by appointment only) so I thought I’d share this beautiful restored Wurlitzer 2300 with you all. They are stunning jukeboxes, and this one was delivered to our customer earlier this year with it’s specially customised granite effect sides.
We have a container that is due to leave New York any time soon and there are 5 of these models onboard that are available for restoration. Built in 1959, these were the first model that Wurlitzer offered with brand new ‘Stereophonic Sound’.
Take a look at our unrestored jukeboxes page to see what is coming in and let us know if you are be interested in anything.
As we get back to delivering to our customers who have been patiently waiting during the lockdown, I thought we would share this 200 electric select AMi Model I we delivered earlier this year. You can see why it is considered the holy grail for AMi Jukebox collectors, in fact Jukebox collectors full stop.
They have the stunning good looks and an amazing sound – an icon of 50’s jukebox engineering.
Needless to say, this customer was happy to add this to his growing collection.
As we prepare to start making some deliveries of jukeboxes that we have been holding during the Covid-19 pandemic I thought we’d share this beautiful 1954 Wurlitzer 1700 that we delivered to another happy customer just in time for Christmas last year.
This Vinyl Jukebox sounds as good as it looks with its original valve amplifier and one of our specially designed Bluetooth connection kits fitted to make full use of it.
The parties were most definitely rockin’ around their Christmas tree.
I thought we’d share some pictures of jukeboxes that we have delivered but you didn’t get to see because we were busy restoring instead of posting on the website.
This 200 select Ami is in cream and copper, released from the factory as the ‘Blonde’ version of the 1957 model H.
It plays its original vinyl 45’s as well as seamlessly streaming from any bluetooth source and looked stunning in the corner of our customers living room when we delivered it last year.
I’m sure they’d agree that with this blonde, you are sure to have more fun!
Here at The Jukebox Shop we may not be able to open the showroom at the moment but we are still taking telephone enquiries and orders for jukeboxes as the workshops still restore ready for delivery as soon as we can. We thought we’d share a couple of quick photographs of an amplifier that has been recently rebuilt for a customer. These old Wurlitzer valve units sound exceptional when they have had a proper job done!
These 1940’s Wurlitzer’s really are the most beautifully designed jukeboxes, you can see why the 1015 became the iconic image of an era. The only problem is, you only get to play the A sides of its twenty four 78rpm records. That is why our bluetooth kit makes this machine much more than a beautiful novelty, allowing you to listen to anything at all through that mellow 40’s valve amp and its 15″ speaker.
This customer was listening to so much more than classical and 1940’s swing on his jukebox once we’d delivered it.
The 1700 was the first dedicated 7″ 45rpm playing jukebox that Wurlitzer released in 1954 and 65 years later it looks just as good in this customers house. We went one step further with this jukebox and added one of our bluetooth connection kits so that as well as playing those 45’s as it should, it will play anything you have through your phone or any bluetooth connected device.
