Item description

Up for grabs is a fun vintage Stern with Multiball! A game you don't see very often, this one was refurbished by volunteers at Decades Arcade. Over $800 was invested, including a full Alltek board set (Ultimate MPU, Driver Board, Lamp Board). We installed six Pinscore LED displays, and bright warm LED's in the GI. We also put LED's in the backbox and under the large blue triangle inserts. The lower flippers have new EOS switches. The legs and levelers are brand new!! The rectifier and sound boards are vintage. We could not find a speech board to install, but it's not required.

The backglass and cabinet arts are very nice! The playfield and plastics are also very nice. There is some old mylar coving the playfield window and a scratch in the area.

These vintage Sterns are on the rise and the later MPU-200 games with multiball are a thin slice of the market. This one has a fun upper playfield, and an increasing playfield multiplier to keep you interested! You can come play this game at Decades Arcade or make an appointment to view it. Please see photos and ask questions. Thanks!
