45 - RPM
"Happy Days" TV Series Style
Getting "lucky" in Las Vegas.
By 1949, Seeburg had
been instrumental in getting RCA to create 45 rpm records.
Seeburg wanted to reduce the size of jukeboxes, to fit in small
establishments like diners, while offering more selections than the
bulkier 78 - rpm units. Of course when the first 45 rpm jukebox
was introduced in October of 1950 it was a Seeburg. This was the
model "B" and it’s successor in 1952, the “BL”.
The model M100
"C" was introduced in May of 1952 for the 1953 year.
It was a "B", glorified with frosty white pilasters and
revolving color wheels, but it took the world by storm. It
turned out to be Seeburgs’ biggest seller.
This wonderful jukebox has been entertaining
friends and family in the home of Don Muller, owner of JUKEBOXES UNLIMITED
®, since his shop rebuilt it back around 1980. Many a party was
held with this beauty as the main attraction cranking out good old
Rock and Roll. Freshly reconditioned, it's ready to start a new life
entertaining new friends. Maybe even you and your friends?
The original cartridge has been updated with the
later version Thorpe for great sound through the original 15-inch
speaker. A newer model mechanism motor runs smoothly under the
original mechanism cover. A rugged new motor runs the chain to drive
the color wheel assemblies. New mirrors installed behind the
mechanism. All coin equipment (including cash bag) in and working with
a "free play" button installed to avoid burning up the latch bar
Standing sentry in front of the speaker are the
100% original thick round mirror grill tubes, not the thin ones they
make today or the metal plumbing pipes. Covering the speaker is real
speaker cloth not some pretty fabric from a linen store. Speaker cloth
doesn't restrict the sound the way fabric does.
As big as JUKEBOXES UNLIMITED ® already was at the time this machine was rebuilt, nearly all
reproduction parts were either made "in house" or exclusively for
the company. One prominent item was the pilasters protecting the color
wheels. And protecting is exactly what these pilasters do.
hand made on a custom built wooden form using several heating strips
to bend the General Electric Herculite plastic. You couldn't even
kick these babies in. Never fear of children damaging the front of this
Through the years we've seen all sorts of
refurbishing jobs that time has taken a toll on. "C" pilasters
were one thing but also on Seeburg "B" and "C" models the
methods of covering the original wood cabinet went from contact paper
and vinyl sheets that would shrink or loose glue to veneer that would
get all nicked up.
Between 1978 and 1985, the craftsmen at JUKEBOXES
UNLIMITED ® applied Formica brand laminate on many of the cabinets they
did. Even three decades later these jukeboxes look exactly like they
did the day they were sold. Formica can really take a beating.
In fact this is one of those Formica cabinets
that actually did take a beating during the infamous 1994 Northridge
earthquake in California’s beautiful San Fernando Valley. (See close
up of said nick.) Aside from this flaw, this is one beautiful, good
working, great sounding jukebox.
Once again, let's
picture it in your entertainment area. Maybe even with a small dance
floor in front of it? Where do you want to hang the disco ball? And
chaser lights around the dance floor? Can't forget them!
Oh, and then you'll want a strobe light somewhere.

jukeboxes bought elsewhere through the Internet is that many sustain

we make sure the components inside are properly secured. In some
cases we can send you detailed photos and instructions on how to
unpack the unit and get it up and running.
