VINTAGE AKAI GX-95 REFERENCE MASTER - PLEASE READ.

Excellent cosmetic condition. Sounds amazing too, however, it needs repair.


Here is the context for your reference:


Head retraction mechanism does not retract down far enough to release right pinch roller from the capstan which makes tape ejection impossible. Original owner forced it open and broke the little plastic tape guide sitting over the left pinch roller (see the last photo. This photo is not of the actual unit). He took it apart hoping to fix it, and lost both, pinch roller at the plastic tape guide that I marked on the photo. I purchased this deck from him a couple of years ago, hoping to source the parts, but was unable to and did not feel like rigging it, so it sat neatly wrapped up in a towel for a little over 2 years.


If you get the line on parts or willing to rig it and 3D print the tape guide, this deck will work beautifully. It’s is squeaky clean inside and out and I purchased it from the original owner.


Let me know if you have any more questions.


Will be shipped within 1 business day of the purchase professionally packed with utmost care to avoid any damage.
