My Sansui sc3000.

By Bob Downs, 8. May 2018, 04:05.
I bought a Sansui sc3000 about a month ago, it needed to be repaired. The veneer that was on the outside looked awful! I took the deck out of the shell and put it in the shop. The wood grain veneer was peeling off, so I removed it only to find a thicker piece of veneer under that. After painstakingly peeling the veneer off, I was surprised to find a beautiful plywood shell. I sanded it down and got all the glue off. I applied a Danish oil natural finish stain, I used Minwax wipe on poly clear Satin polyurethane protection. I just got the deck back from the shop today, and put it back in its new shell. This deck is absolutely gorgeous with the plywood and natural finish. My question is, why would Sansui cover up such a beautiful piece of wood with two veneer finishes?

The veneer was most likely used to ensure uniformity between the units that are supposed to go together. Could it then be, that If some of the sc3000 took a while longer to sell than the batch of gear that it was originally supposed to go with, then another layer of veneer had to be applied to make it fit well with another batch?

We would LOVE to see a picture of the restored unit. We are working on functionality that will allow pictures as part of posts, but we are not quite there yet. However, If you would like to show an image, then you can send it to us and we will put it up as soon as we can..

I would be happy to send you the pictures of the before during, and after transformation of this deck. I'm not sure how to send them, I could use some help sending them to you. If you could walk me through the process I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
