    Please note....
    So much to mention on the level of restoration I did on this unit that I cannot possibly document it all here. I do realize other 100C Seeburg jukeboxes on Ebay maybe listed cheaper or may have more original parts but there true working condition and reliability is either unknown, unproven, or undocumented. This unit is working and restored to last. I have taken my knowledge on what goes wrong with these units and applied it to this one to avoid any major issues in the near future. You must also consider the location of a jukebox. It may be cheaper but if it's not near you shipping is going to be costly since these are 300+ pounds and large. Did I mention I can deliever? Please see pictures and contact me with questions. I love to talk about jukeboxes. More pictures posted on thirdbayradios.com

    Some background info on this Model. This model Jukebox, the 100C, was the aniversary model for Seeburg. They wanted to really make it stand out more because of this. There are very simular models to this jukebox but this is the only model with the color wheel pillars that rotate slowly. Yes, it was featured in the credits of the show Happy Days and it is sometimes referred to the Happy Days jukebox even though I think Mel's dinner actually had a different model in the actual show. It has been along time since I have seen an episode. I have been told that the only more popular mode jukebox would be the Wurlitzer with the round top and bubble sides but that is always up for debate, they all were nice.

    It stores 50 records. It only plays 45s which are the small records with the large holes.

    IT WILL NOT PLAY FULL LENGTH ALBUMS WHICH ARE COMMONLY 33-1/2s.

    It does play both the A and B sides of each 45 record allowing you have a total of 100 selections. There are many on-line record sites that sell 45s. They reprint (or brand new) many of these 45s with 'Hits' on both sides. You can still find many original press 45s online also but will cost alittle more. Most 45s go for 5 to 10 bucks a record.

    This jukebox was designed for mono playback and with this "Red Head" Hi-Fi cartridge it sounds incredible. It was not designed for stereo records and stereo records will not play in stereo on this jukebox but will still sound good. This Jukebox has the original "Red Head" Hi Fi mono playing needle cartridge that came with the 100C originally.
