Original Sun Taperecorder For Sale

For sale on eBay is the Sun Ampex Mono tape Machine, used by Sam Philips. The seller is one of Johnny Cash’s producers. This is from the description: “As Johnny Cash’s producer, “The Great Lost Performance” I had the pleasure of meeting Sam Phillips of the famed Sun Records Studio, where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis along with many others got their start. A few months before Sam Phillips passed away, I purchased the original tape machine used at Sun Records for a price close to what I am asking. Of course Sam had to be paid in cash. That was Sam. Anyway, up for bid is the Ampex Mono tape machine used by Sam Phillips , Sam told me it was a 1948 Ampex. Which I purchased from his home. The tape machine is still in good working condition and sounds great! I will provide a letter of origin with the tape machine. Johnny Cash helped me with putting the deal together and the deal was witnessed by a well known artist manager.” Asking price is 60.000 $US.

I saw the same AMPEX mono tape machine at the "Marché aux puces"(Flea market) in Paris,France 20 years ago for a fishful of bucks.

i was in the studio last year and on the 2nd floor in the "Loft" with other sun material was what they claimed to be the original mono tape machine. So who's got what,? A bill of sale from same would be the only thing that would make this authentic, and the fact that sam is now with Elvis, Rufus, Johnny, Roy and the rest of the gang i would say Buyer Beware. Also same was a multi millionaire who owned a lot of holliday inn stock did he need your money. Maybe just Maybe Knox might be able to prove it.
