As seen on american pickers as mike wolfâs favorite… Â it has been restored and is in excellent condition. The rockola 1428 is a beautiful jukebox that is becoming increasingly harder to find in this condition as the reproduction parts guys no longer have many of the replacement parts which were once available for restoration.
This jukebox has been completely disassembled and every part painted, polished, cleaned, and/or oiled. This project was extremely time consuming and costly, but i think the result is a beautiful jukebox. Please note items such as the amp (original and correct for 1428), junction box (original and correct for 1428), and foil/red glitter behind record trays which were hand re-created and gorgeous, condition of all plastics, cleanliness inside and out, no missing covers(popularity meter/accumulator), cash box, etc. Below is a detailed description of each of the major item of interest on this jukebox. The upper green plastics and center amber are reproduction and in perfect new condition.
The original lower red plastics and upper center red plastic have been polished and are absolutely perfect with no cracks, burns, deep scratches, fading, staining etc, of any kind. The lower reds are absolutely the nicest pair iâve ever seen on a 1428. New veneer has been applied and finished in a dark red finish that looks great-see pictures.
The veneer is very thick as original and not cheap thin veneer from a store such as woodcraft. The mechanism functions properly and selects all 20 records as it should. The mechanism has been completely restored and operates perfectly.
The box is currently set to play 78rpm records as it did in 1948. However, this jukebox is commonly converted to 45rpm since it has a lightweight tone arm. The amp has been rebuilt and truly sounds fantastic, especially for a 1940âs box. The amp was rebuilt this year by bill bickers at jukebox friday night and he did a great job with this one. It has great volume and is crystal clear.
It actually sounds better than my seeburg c. The coin gear is missing and the jukebox is currently set to free play. Actually, this works well for most people because you donât have to keep coins lying around to play it. Itâs easy for kids (and adults) to simply walk up, push the button, and listen to it play without using coins constantly. The color wheel and color wheel motor have been replaced with reproduction parts and. The colors from the color wheel look fantastic when they shine on the new reproduction speaker grill cloth. Please note the condition of the titleboard. It has been perfectly reproduced to match the original. This is an extremely time consuming task, but the results are a perfect match in regards to font, color, lettering, etc. I realize this is an expensive item so please do not hesitate to ask questions.
