RCA model 45-EY-3 ca:1950


The 45EY3 is an all Bakelite 45 RPM record player and automatic changer. This one has been fully restored, it works and sounds as good as new. My restorations are not a quick repair involving only the most obvious parts needed or a spot of oil just to make it work. The case, mechanism, motor, each and every part has been disassembled, cleaned & lubed. Needed repairs made and faulty/worn parts replaced.

In 1959 I worked at a store (my first job) in my home town  that sold home appliances and electronics. My main job was working as one of their electronic techs and became quite familiar with the RCA 45 RPM players.

Here's What You Get:

  • The case is in excellent condition sans one small area on the rear right corner has had a properly repaired small fracture, see photo (far right bottom). The finish is quite shiny with only a few minor scuffs & scratches.

  • Idler wheel, reject cam, cartridge/stylus plus electronic parts replaced.

  • replacement ceramic (non original) cartridge replaced, better sound & less prone to failure than the original crystal type, plus it tracks at less pressure (4 grams).

  • The electronics fully restored, all capacitors off value resistors & weak tubes replaced.

  • All labels and stickers are there and in excellent condition.

Yes you can buy these cheap on eBay but the work involved in making them work properly will cost in the neighborhood of $150 or so.
