Sharp GF-777z

Sharp GF-777

 

One of the Holy Grail's of boombox collecting is the Sharp GF-777z or GF-777.  One of the first boomboxes with double cassettes it was also produced in Japan as model GF-909.  The GF-777 has six speakers -  two woofers, two "sub" woofer's and two horn type tweeters.  It weighs almost 27 pounds (12.2 kg) not inlcuding the 10 D sized batteries required to power it.

The boxes routinely sell for $500.00 to over $700.00 depending upon condition. I recently saw one sell for $19.99 via buy it now. LOL. Perhaps the seller didn't know what they had? Someone got a good deal!

I think you will find the Japan equivalent is in fact the GF-919. The GF-909 has black centers in the speakers and the area under the grill is painted black.

Hey, thanks for the picture Richard. That’s a nice looking box. So, the Sharp GF-919 was the version sold in Japan? Where was the Sharp GF-909 sold?

Hey guys, I’ve laid my hands a gf-777. It’s got no mains cable, and I was wondering if you had any advice for me – am I safe to use any 240v rated power cable?
