The AMI II Continental was launched at an exciting time in American history – humanity was discovering space travel, a frontier previously untouched by human civilisation. The AMI Continental jukebox celebrated this by exploring an entirely revolutionary design, produced by the Automatic Musical Instrument Company.

The pioneering ‘Sputnik’ design comprises a wrap-around title strip holder hovering serenely above the record changer, which is contained in a parabolic, space-age bubble on the machine’s body. The gentle illumination subtly enhances its golden trim and soft cabinet colours. Its unique construction gives the jukebox a distinctive silhouette, and was intended by AMI to set a ‘new standard of style’.

The Continental features AMI’s wonderful analogue sound system, which produces a genuine vinyl to valve sound, giving it a clear authentic tone. The mechanism introduced as standard on jukeboxes of the time allows 200 selections; both sides of 100 45rpm vinyl records.

The AMI II Continental 200 vinyl jukebox is a charming snapshot of the American ideals of the time – beautifully capturing the hope, anticipation and pride that the space-race era brought for the common man.

The Continental became very popular in the early 1990's when one was used in the hit movie 'Ghost' starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.

All of our vintage products are sourced to order and restored in our workshops in Surrey by our talented in-house team. 

We offer a grade A1 restoration as standard. We do not use a 'restoration checklist' as every component is checked and refurbished as part of our uncompromising refurbishment process.

We are thorough and comprehensive throughout and are striving to deliver a machine that is near to how it came out of the factory. All of our restoration work is guaranteed by our one-year on-site parts and labour warranty. 

The Automatic Musical Instrument Company (AMI) played a pioneering role in jukebox history. Their roots go back to 1909 when they made automatic player pianos. This experience with automatic selection mechanisms proved useful when they entered the jukebox scene in 1927. Their first model, the National Automatic Selective Phonograph, offered 20 selections and could play both sides of records, a feature that remained a standard for AMI jukeboxes for the next three decades.


Music and Title Cards Pricing

Music itself is an important part of our business, as reflected by our treasured vinyl library, so we are able to help you source and create the perfect playlist. We also make all of the title cards in original typewriter font – so if you’re a bit stuck for choice, we are only too happy to help!

The charge for vintage records is £15 + VAT per record, this covers most records however some are highly collectable for which we have to pay a premium and are charge at a higher price. The title card service is £150 + VAT.

It is quite an involved process to supply records as we buy them in from dealers or collectors, they will only guarantee the "A" side, so often many records do not pass with us because we always supply records with playable "B" sides as well as the "A".

The centres are then cut (big hole centres) which also leads to some breakage as some of the records split due to their age. Finally they are hand washed and then played both "A" and "B" side on a gramophone for sound quality, only then are they fit to go on the Jukebox. The final check is again playing "A" and "B" side as you would hear it on your Jukebox.

It's all about delivering good quality sound for our clients and if you are investing in a vinyl jukebox the standard of the records have to demonstrate the high standard of our restorations.
