    I know this isn’t pinball related but would love one for my game room. Where do I go about looking for one of these? Other than the obvious eBay or craigslist. Location Seattle would be interested anywhere really as long as it can be shipped.

    I wish someone would fill one with a bunch of great hit records but every time you play something it Rick-rolls you and only plays

    There are jukebox forums as well.

    Are you looking for a CD box or one that plays 45’s? If you want vintage 45 boxes be prepared to learn a little as jukebox techs are few and far between. But they can be fixed. Prices are all over the map just like pins. Some are very desirable and others are not. The 70’s and 80’s boxes can be found dirt cheap or almost free- usually as a project. The early boxes (50’s/60’s) with visible record mechs are the ones people mostly want. Take your time and figure out what kind of box you want and budget. Happy hunting!

    And actually, if you get a Rock-Ola....their tech manuals are FRIGGIN AMAZING.

    I'm not even joking when I say that there is a fold out circuit diagram of every single step of operation that shows which parts of the circuit are active for that step. It's completely batshit insane, and I love it. When I bought my 470, the guy had the manual and schematic books, and it made it so ridiculously easy to repair it. I took apart the turntable A/C motor to clean it, and had to lube up the rest of the machine real good and get things moving again. I also replaced a cube relay that I got off Ebay for a few bucks. These older boxes are just TANKS, man. I'd never worked on a juke at all before, only pins.

    John's Jukes as mentioned above also has a crapton of manuals for jukeboxes.

    What era/style/manufacturer are you looking for? 78s? 45s? CDs?

    Prolly 45s?

    I've always wanted a 1958 Seeburg 201. Holds 100 45's.

    I know where a mint condition NSM Nostalgia Gold is (st Louis). Probably $3-4k range

    I would suggest a Rowe R-90 or newer. They are very reliable and have good sound. Bass is pretty strong.

    One of the coolest looking jukeboxes ever (IMHO) - the 1962 AMI Continental II:

    I was picking up some pins from a retired operator a couple of months ago and saw this Seeburg 222 in his warehouse. I always wanted a jukebox so made an offer and this project looks and runs great now!

    Sounds like pinside need to diversify into a jukebox/pin style website. They go so well together!
