One-of-a-kind Rosewood AR turntable
Here's a rosewood version of the AR turntable from the '80s. It's not just rare...it's the only one of its kind. It's featured on the Vinyl Nirvana site and has a very interesting story behind it. Apparently AR wanted to test several different kinds of veneer before they went with the walnut. This was the one made from rosewood and wound up in the hands of an AR employee, who kept it for many years. He sold it to David Archambault, the owner/proprietor of Vinyl Nirvana.

I would grab this one in a heartbeat, too...but it's practically priceless. What a beautiful turntable.
