Panasonic SG-123 record player and electronic keyboard

And deftly.

(Pictured: A Panasonic DO-RE-MI SG-123 miniorgan and record player. I’d love to know who designed this device — the layout of the interface, the use of type and icons, and the choice of material are all remarkable. )

  1. zoe,

    Oh my goodness! I can’t believe you found it! Did you clean it up? It looks fantastic! Does it work??

  2. ratchetcat,

    Sadly, it does not appear to work. It’s missing a few parts, too — the rubber covering for the record player, its cartridge, and the covers for the battery and cord compartments on the bottom.

    The keyboard and record player might be made operable again. I doubt the compartment covers could ever be replaced without a lot of effort.

  3. zoe,

    I’m glad that you were able to capture it in such a great photograph. Would be pretty cool if it worked, too! 🙂
