Lucky Pierre Posted October 27, 2018 Report Share Posted October 27, 2018 Greetings, I was at a get together with some friends Wednesday night. I mentioned that I had just bought parts for four speaker projects I have right now. When I mentioned that I was working on a pair of AR-5 and AR-4x, a new friend said he had a pair of AR-3 up on a shelf and asked if I wanted them. I've never really considered looking for AR-3's, considering the prices they fetch these days and the fact that I recently picked up the AR-5's for myself. He offered them to me for $700. After a (very) brief inner dialog, I said yes! He's had them for about 30 years, and they were last in use about 6 years ago. He said they have never been opened up. The cabinets are a little rough, but all corners are solid, and as far as I could see, there are only a couple of small chips in the veneer at the bottom of the speakers. The grill cloth is saggy and falling off the frame and will need to be replaced. All of the badges are there. I've read, and re-read the restoration guide in preparation for tackling the AR-5's, so I'm ready for these, too. S/n are C23418 and C23428. There is a note on the warranty card stating Oct. 1963. I'll probably pick them up next weekend. I'll post pics when I get them home. L_P Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
