The styli are a pain to replace, make sure that you have a sturdy needle or similar to remove the old stylus; club I worked at in the 70s had them and we found that new Stanton 500's were the better option for our (then) Goldring-Lenco GL70's LOL

You won't be disappointed! Perfect for dubplates, round and warm bass Wink
Jico (based in Japan) manufactures good quality replacement stylus for it if you can't find a NOS one.

Seeing that picture prompted me to do a bit of research. I’ve seen the 16 rpm speed on a few old garrards and lencos in the past, but never in my life have I ever seen a 16 rpm vinyl. Apparently they do exist, but are very rare and were mainly used for spoken word audio book type stuff as the sound quality from the slow speed wasn’t really good enough for music.

That garrard does look good though, must have been well looked after during its life. Does it all work ok?
