Hello,

Looking to sell my recently restored Fish Tales. I really don't want to part with this machine, however I'm not able to play it as much as it deserves. I have been restoring this machine over the past year so all work done below has been pretty recent. I didn't bother to restore the playfield much as I was planing on buying a CPR one down the road. Please see the list of features below as well as pics. I can post more pictures as needed just ask ! Asking $3200.00 o.b.o. I would prefer a local sale. I'm located about 30 min west of Pittsburgh. Thanks.

Mighty nice looking - even the key hanging in the coin door has the fish keychain. Too bad this didn't come up 3 weeks ago before I filled the open hole in my lineup with riverboat gambler... I'm only 3 hours from PGH.

Man that is the coolest FT I've ever seen. Awesome job. I can see this one going fast. You worked your butt off on it and it shows.

I decided I will allow shipping via NAVL since it seems to be very reputable. However that would be up to the buyer to set up. I have access to all the shipping materials required and also a fork lift to help load. I can palletize and wrap the machine as well prior to pickup. Also please not the game does include the lock down bar and glass. I removed them in order to get nicer pictures. Thanks again for the interest.

Seems someone else offered to come see it on Wed ( local) after price agreed upon and I offered to pay same day, so I was kicked to second place back up, I'm out.

You can always buy mine with a Color DMD non faded decals that is fully shopped. Super nice game for $3200.00

I said multiple times I really would prefer to stay local and that I would consider shipping. I would like the buyer to be able to see the machine first hand so they know exactly what they are purchasing so they walk away happy. Sorry if I offended you, but I feel this way is an ideal solution for both parties.
