Cabinet Identification

Post by PHRHD »

I wasn't sure if there was a board for this, so I figured external sales might work for what it is. I'm still new to the cabinet scene, and was hoping I could get some help identifying a specific cabinet. This thing is obviously beat to hell, and would need some restoration for sure, but it's difficult to find any relatively decent deals on candy cabinets here in America.

With that in mind, could you guys let me know if this is an actual cabinet? If so, what model? It looks like someone may have made it? It's pretty pieced together...

UPDATE: I think it's an Aero City, but man... it's pretty beat. Do you think it's a good deal?

Yeah, I kinda figured it wouldn't be worth my time. Hopefully it goes to a home with more money to bring it back to its original glory, but sadly, that's not me. Thanks a lot!

I dont think it is such a bad deal, get rid of the game and invest the money in new art.

Yeah, I was looking at it further, and it would need a good cleaning, and some dent repair, but the rest seems intact. I was looking for some new art, but wasn't able to find any right off the bat. Any suggestions for where to maybe track down some repro art?

theside art shouldnt be 2 hard to get made as the files are about.
The illumination panel put me off, but maybe it's just laminated plastic over it? The only other area is the cp panel area, it looks crap. Dents and scratches are part of our cabs so wouldn't worry about that, Aero's are pretty solid cabs
