He has a note in the description stating the radio is in Florida, pick-up only.

IF the guy is in Fla, he should change the address in his account poste-haste. Like before posting listings. I got burned on that once, for a guy who had a local address and after I bought the radio on ebay, turns out he had moved away and not bothered to fix his acct. And it was a long term hassle getting the radio from him. I think he quit ebay shortly afterwards.

The eBay ad states: "Transformers have been replaced." Do you know what replacement transformers were used?

I don't know, but for me it is display only anyway for awhile.

A bonus for people who don't pay attention and/or don't care.

Back on Ebay. Wait till you see the transformer mounting and more ventilation holes in bottom.

It looks like same radio but the newly listed radio appears to have more dust and grime on it. Maybe it’s just the flash or quality of pics. They both appear to have the same serial number.

Same radio. I'm guessing the new seller bought it cheap off the original seller and is now flipping it.

It is the same radio, even the nuts on the jacks are in the same positions.

Wood grain on bottom base has the same pattern of light & dark on both. Serial numbers look the same when enlarged. I am calling in CSI on this.
