I'm with Beck.
The lifters show higher than average miles, R/P stack looks consistent with that.
Still life left, but not what I'd pay $800 for.
Like implied above this is all "grain of salt" stuff because its impossible to give a head report off of a picture but I think you're getting the...erm...picture.
I had a 388 stack relapped and the 388 stack has a relatively healthy amount of tip-depth when new (i.e. there's a good amount of "meat" to work with when relapping) so that's good, but there's no way to get even an estimation on remaining tip-depth on that type of headstack without sending it to JRF, Sprague or similar for an evaluation.
Might be able to get new lifters from Teac, or put sleeves on those ones...or turn them but that's not easy.
Yep. I sold my 388 for $900 in beautifully restored minty condition, FULLY recapped, low miles on the headstack, fully operational and calibrated/setup. Buyer got a reasonable deal, and I was happy with what I got. Seems the machine you are looking at is a far-cry from that.
Take THAT with a grain of salt...heheh.
Your ability to be a complete ignoramous.
