For the last 30 years or so I’ve relied on my LP12 to get the best out of my vinyl collection. I’ve always loved the musicality of this deck and even though it has been significantly upgraded over the years, it has never lost that musical quality. I have however always fancied a turntable restoration project, ideally around the classic Garrard 301 and last year I was fortunate enough to come across a grease bearing model that had been stored for many years and was in need of a good home. Well now it has one.
Over the coming months (hopefully not years) I’ll report on progress and include some images along the way. Here is the Garrard before work started.
