 266412607637235860 Sequerra Model 1 FM Tuner

I am offering my Sequerra Model 1 FM stereo tuner for bids. This is, in my opinion [and that of countless others], the finest FM tuner ever made. It is both beautiful to look at and to listen to. I am its original owner. It comes to you in its original box and includes its original manuals along with all the correspondence between me and the manufacturer. This unit features a gold faceplate and is absolutely flawless throughout. In addition this fine tuner comes with a new replacement CRT to use when it becomes necessary. I have included some additional information regarding this extraordinary FM tuner and its sale below. The Sequerra Model 1 was the first product of the Sequerra Company. Richard "Dick" Sequerra had been the primary designer of the equally famous Marantz 10B tuner a few years earlier. The Model 1 was as much a statement product as the 10B, but it is solid state rather than tubes. Work on the Model 1 was started in 1972, and it was produced for only a couple years starting in 1974. Based on a conversation I had with Dick Sequerra back in 1993, only about 1,400 units were produced, compared to about 8,000 Marantz 10Bs It is interesting to note that one engineer at Sequerra indicated that 90% of sales were made to industry professionals, not audiophiles. The unit sold for $2,500 in 1974, equivalent to over $10,000 today’s dollars. Notice: Recently Pay Pal has been placing a 21 day hold on funds for some sales. If this hold applies to this auction there will be an additional 21 day handling period placed on this item. I will ship the item to the winning bidder immediately upon the receipt of cleared funds. Acceptance of this additional handling period is a condition of this auction; please do not bid on this item if you do not agree to accept this additional waiting period! I will notify the winning bidder if the hold actually does apply, if it does not I will immediately ship the item, if the hold applies I will ship the item once I’ve received cleared funds after 21 days. However, if the hold applies and you refuse to wait I will immediately refund your money and cancel the sale. In the event a hold is placed the additional waiting period serves to protect both of us equally. I thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter.
