But what about my tape recorder? The one I got for Christmas just a year after my brother got his?
Sparing you the boring details of how I came to this conclusion, I figured out that my tape recorder was a General Electric model 3-5014 as seen in the picture above. Occasionally, these would pop up on eBay but the asking prices were always far more than I was willing to pay. Then, after almost four years of searching, there it was.
Original box? Check.
Instruction manual? Check.
Protective Styrofoam? Check.
GE 3-5014 with power cord? Check.
Reasonable asking price? Check!
A week later....this.
In all its glory.
No doubt the same model.
One more void filled. Thank you, internet. I win again.
