2015 RAFFLE JUKE COMING SOON!!
Each year the American Historic Juke Box Society (AHJBS) raffles off a jukebox and this year's raffle will again be for an AMI Juke. This 1953 AMI E-120 is currently being restored by the members and it should be ready to display sometime in March/April. As always, this will be a great sounding box and it will come loaded with records! Interested in buying raffle tickets? Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The 2014 raffle juke box is an AMI E-120 from 1953. It will hold 60 records (45rpm) for a total of 120 selections. Weighing approximately 318 pounds, it stands about 62" high, 39" wide, and 27" deep. this unit was in rather rough shape, as you can see in the pictures. The main deck inside had to be replaced as well as the bottom. Fortunately, the front glass was intact. This unit will receive a rebuilt amp, courtesy of Director Bob Burke, and President Nick Rosa has been doing major repairs and painting of the cabinet. The mech is being rebuilt and provided by Dale Reinhart. The unit should be ready real soon, and we will publish pictures when it is ready for show!
The E-120 was finished and ready to show off back in April. With the beautifully veneered cabinet, this box has been a real "show stopper"! Everybody stops to take a lingering look, and can't help but admire its beauty!
