I got the player on eBay and always had good luck with the help of members on this site. Does anyone know what type laminate is on the sides/back and has anyone on here tried to place? Tks Ron

The ristaucrat is veneered (probably in a lesser strait grain) and then covered in blonde cover stain.

Thanks Kirk, wondering how hard it will be to remove ? I’ll have it over the weekend and maybe I can also tell how thick it is.

1/16 is normal but I remember it being a bit thicker. Mine had veneer issues on the sides also but it was years ago...

Removing veneer can be tedious. You can use heat and a scraper and it will take a little time and effort. I don't know what glue they used on the Ristaucrat but I will in a week or so when I strip mine, lol
