It's pretty easy to get the armrest done anyway you want...just take it to an upholstery shop.

$215 thousand dollars for an SSL 4000

He must very proud of it.

It's a G+ special edition -- it's a little different animal than an old stock 4000.

I've actually seen this at the cave -- pretty impressive

Yes, it's mine alright. My house is on the market so I decided to dip my toe in the water on selling the console as well. When I move it will be easier to start over than store this console for six to nine months while my new place is being built.
I don't know what I would replace it with though. It truly ROCKS!

Please pass the word along to people you think may be interested.

Thanks

I hate to see this console be moved again - I once dreamed about it for a very short time - great console

Can't stand the red-trimmed SSLs. They look cheap and tacky.

I thought we bought gear cuz it sounded good?????

If you can afford the console, you can afford to have it reupholstered in any color or material that you want. Have it re-done like a Bentley.

It looks like it is still for sale on E-bay, 30,000. The link at the top is still good.

No, I believe that's just eBay routing the expired link through to a current listing. Different console, IIRC, and on offer from a dealer in GA.

Yep. Well, kinda.

It's actually just the eBay site automatically re-pointing the expired link to a list of current auctions for 'similar' items, which happens to presently include the 30k desk auction. Next week it will be something else...

I sold my Red SSL console to Pete Townsend (The Who) years ago.... Vintage King brokered the deal.

I almost typed "I don't think Tom/Batcave comes around here anymore" and there you are. What did you replace the SSL with?
