Rediscover the magic of vinyl from a bygone era with the Vintage Seeburg 161 Jukebox, a cherished piece of jukebox history waiting to grace your home. Manufactured by Seeburg Corporation in 1958, renowned for its iconic jukebox designs, this timeless masterpiece exudes mid-century charm and musical nostalgia, promising hours of entertainment and enjoyment.

Along with its big sister the 201, the Seeburg 161 model proudly showcases Seeburg’s talent for designing their jukeboxes with glorious 1950's flourishes.

The Cadillac fins on its speaker grille were ubiquitous in vehicle design in the mid-20th century. From the jet planes of the evolving aviation industry to the shuttles of America’s infant space program, the retro-styling captured the imagination of the public and spilled over into automobile design, which then in turn influenced the look of jukeboxes of the time.

The main difference between the 161 and the 201 apart from the size was the vinyl capacity, with 160 selections on offer from the 161 and 200 from the 201. Additionally, the model 161 features two of the distinctive 'brake lights' while the model 201 has three.

The addition of the ruby lights studding its speaker grille enhances the 161’s wow factor, making it one of the most striking examples of an automobile-styled jukebox. 

Less than 2000 of these jukeboxes were built by Seeburg, which ensures their rarity. Being their first '160 selection' model further enhances the 161's status in the annals of jukebox history!

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. 

Seeburg Corporation, founded in 1907 by Justus P. Seeburg, initially manufactured player pianos before transitioning to jukeboxes in the late 1920s. Seeburg's breakthrough came with the introduction of the Selectophone, the first jukebox to play both sides of 50 records, revolutionizing the industry in 1928. Over the following decades, Seeburg continued to innovate, introducing features like the Select-O-Matic in the 1940s, which allowed users to choose individual songs, and the introduction of stereo sound in the 1960s with the introduction of the Select-O-Matic 100.

The company ceased production in 1979 but Seeburg jukeboxes remain iconic symbols of American culture, cherished by collectors and enthusiasts worldwide for their innovative designs and contribution to the history of music consumption.


Music and Title Cards Pricing

Music itself is an important part of our business, as reflected by our treasured music 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 £120 + VAT for a handmade set regardless of the selection quantity.

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.
