Beautiful Ghostbusters Premium with "LE quality" upgrades. Comes with powder coating armor and wire form rails, color DMD, art blades, extended flipper bats with flipper bat toppers, speaker light kit, shaker motor, custom shooter rod and more. HUO as I bought from original owner (also on pinside) and the game plays perfect (slimer works perfect too!) The only blemish is a small place on the side of the cabinet roughly the size of a thumb print. The playfield is perfect.
I realize some may care and some may not, (and I respect both takes) but I am selling this and will give 100% of the sale price to a wonderful cause, a local church in my community that is doing amazing mission work in Uganda by drilling wells, building houses, and handing out food and clothes for those in need.
Background story, as a kid in my 20s I went to Tanzania with Habitat for Humanity global village program and saw poverty that was almost unimaginable. I came back so badly wanting to help but was just a kid without a real job at that time, and there just wasn't much I could do (outside of going there and giving my time which I did and loved).
Fastforward 30 years later and one of my campground helpers just got back from a 2-week mission trip to Uganda where they drilled a well and helped hand out supplies and were building homes. When he came back and showed me the pictures and videos it really took me back to being there 3 decades ago. And while I couldn't do much in my early 20s I am blessed to run our family business and CAN do something about it now, so I've decided to sell a few of my pinball machines to help those families in need.
I have attached the picture that made me decide to do this. (Moderation edit: picture removed as it violates Pinside Rules, but feel free to PM seller if you would like to see it). That is the home of a widow who has 11 children. And that is exactly how they sleep at night. That "home" has no plumbing and no real beds. That one picture moved me so much I decided I would sell a few machines and try to make a difference. After seeing dozens of pictures like that one, I decided having clean water and a home fit for human occupancy was far more important than the 18th pin in my beloved pinball collection.
I had thought about doing an auction as I really want to raise as much money as possible but decided to just try selling here first. If you feel led to go above my asking price, I hope you will and if you feel led to just donate anything, please contact me. The best part about this is having a missionary contact that's a good friend/employee that will have his boots on the ground doing the work, so I don't have to worry about what is happening with the funds donated (as the reality is most money we donate to big charities does take percentages that goes towards administrative and advertising costs, where this will 100% go to supplies and the work being done on the ground) And if my asking price isn't realistic, I apologize as I wish to offend no one. But I just don't see a lot of these for sale, and it really was beautifully upgraded by the first owner as well as tasteful mods I've added. I've had friends that have played it and said it was the nicest playing ghostbusters they have ever played. I would welcome anyone to come play it first, and if you do buy it, I can even put you up in a cabin on our campground to help breakup your drive if you are coming any great distance.

Again, I hope this doesn't come off as preachy or offensive to anyone. But I know I've met a lot of really kind and generous people in this hobby who I think understand where I am coming from and what I'm trying to do. Thanks for reading (or passing along to potential interested parties) and I'm happy to provide any additional information about the pinball or the mission cause. Thanks for looking!
