I need to know the honest value on this jukebox, My Dad just restored this and passed away, we would love to keep it but we don't have the room, Thanks for any help you can give us.

    As you can imagine, jukebox values change with the economy. The light-up models usually bring the most money but condition of any model most important.
    Is the jukebox complete...are the parts original to the model...is the coin gear functional...is the cabinet solid...where is the jukebox located (if it's in Alaska, shipping would be a problem to the rest of the U.S.)
    The most common wooden cabinet models complete but unrestored would probably average around $1000. A good way to check is to check ebay's completed auctions for some of the more common models - Wurlitzer 312, 412, 616, P-12. Completeness and condition would bring more money. It costs about the same to ship a light-up as it does a "woody" so you'll see more light-up
    models sold.
    Where are you located?

    Just looked at the blowup of the picture posted. It does look very nice. I imagine that would reflect well in it's value. I'm not an appraiser so it would make sense to check prices online. Although Ebay prices can't be held as an absolute determinant of actual value, if you have enough examples to judge from it can be a pretty good indicator. Again, do an advanced search for that model on Ebay in the "completed auction" category. I kind of hate to ever give
    value estimates because there's always a range of prices. What sells well in one area of the country may not be as popular elsewhere. As soon as one value is given, someone will have a different opinion. Get lots of opinions from different sources and come to a value that you feel comfortable with.

    I'm looking for an unrestored version to purchase but there isn't much to choose from here in SC. It'll probably take shipping to get one here and that adds to the cost.

    Do you have any more photos of your 412 that you could email? I'd love to
    see it all around and also photos of the mechanism, amp and speaker.

    Is that the light bar at the top of the photo?

    Here is one for sale on line. They want a pretty good chunk for it. When it comes to bigger items on eBay you can get low balled unless that is how you want to sell it. Most buyers do take the cost of shipping into account and that lowers the price you get.

    Perfect example. Here is one sold on line, that would having shipping costs. It's going for about a grand. I guess it just depends on how fast you want to sell it.

    I noticed yours is not like those. So I found yours. The guy claimed it to be a prototype, but he doesn't seem like an expert. It may have been an limited edition. I hope someone knows the difference.

    I don't think the two are the same. I believe that corvette69's is a regular production W412 with a light bar attachment. I've never seen a light bar attachment mounted on top of the juke before. Usually they replaced the wooden grille. You'd have to compare the serial numbers to see if the models were the same. The "prototype" does have a different style door. It is rounded at the top to fit the profile of the domed top. The regular 412's door is rectangular to match the flat top.
    That being said, there did seem to be many changes within each model in order to keep the jukes "current". There also were many aftermarket light up kits for
    wooden cabinet jukes.
    Mark, can you measure the light up bars and see if they fit the grille area?
  8. Mark, 3 years ago
    Hi Everybody, Thanks for all the input on my 412, the light bar is just sitting on top although it is wired to it, my Dad was going to hang it on the wall above the jukebox so he could leave the grill in place. I will get you more pictures when I can get back up north and take them.

    I also have a Wurlitzer model 1650 that is i believe to be unrestored and works and looks awesome, If someone can tell me how I can add pictures to this listing I will.
    Thanks Again, Mark

    Hi Mark,
    Just picked out and put a deposit on a Wurlitzer 412 in North Carolina. I 'll
    probably pick it up sometime this summer. It's a rough box but complete. I can't wait to get to work on it. I'm actually in the middle of a Wurlitzer 400 restoration now. That's why I've got to delay the W412 project - not enough room for two project jukes at once.
    I'm starting to take notice of all the different changes in equipment complement within a particular model. The 412 had a few different amp/volume control
    setups. The box I'll get will have a 660 amp that has the volume control built into the amp. There is no separate volume control box mounted under the tonearm.
    I'd like to see photos of your setup. If you can post some please include a photo of the Wurlitzer tag with the serial number and info on the amp/volume control
    model.

    Hi, I'm actually looking for a 412. A non-restored one would be better but I would be interested if its not too expensive and would be able to pick up from Michigan (about a 3 hour drive). Looks beautiful!
