LOCATION: SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN / NEAR WINDSOR, ONTARIO
I purchased this machine and cabinet in December 2010 for $7,900... I believe the higher price reflects the cabinet that is no longer offered (see pix). Before he arrived, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and although GEORGE was set up, he has NEVER been used.
As you can see from pix, he is a true Silver Stud with his name emblazoned in Red. What a look! And the old-style cabinet (also new, of course) features four storage drawers of wood construction. Please know that--as a 2010 model--he does not accommodate the "M" bobbins (only "L"), nor can he deal with interchangeable feet without a retrofit. I am told that the retrofit is "no big deal," but I don't know enough about this subject to discuss it intelligently, so you'll have to do your due diligence on this site. Also, his original equipment includes a clip-on light that plugs into the machine, a bobbin winder, instruction book, and bobbins.
I know that there are many "suitors" who prefer the "industrial look" of the pre-2011 GEORGE, as well as the substantial, old-style cabinet, which is more of a piece of furniture, but does not fold away. (This higher-end cabinet may account for the [higher] 2010 price of $7,900.)
I am offering this never-used, late 2010 GEORGE at a firm price of $4000, local pick-up only.
