I can literally see the mouse crap and the nest behind the radio back. I also see a chunk missing from the photos of the back.
Not to mention the chewed up back panel....

True, I am not afraid of mouse crap but it has a chunk out.

He is not an honest seller. He went and cleaned out the crap and took a new photo. He mentions NOTHING about it having had mice in it.
He did picture the chunk though but not in the description.. Very Dishonest IMO

:evil:

I won't buy anything that I know has rodent damage. I have no problem with replacing a few nibbled wires, but they have a tendency to gnaw on things like coils and speaker cones....
