Could be a model RC4652. Here's a photo of a model RC4652-A in wood with a Garrard changer. Probably what the "-A" indicates. No stamp or sticker on the back? At any rate I would expect the guts to be the same and Radiomuseum has a schematic. Sams 744-6 covers it as well. Perhaps someone can provide a copy for you.

Set-744 Folder-6 is for the Four-tube amplifier.
12AX7 6AQ5A 6AQ5A 6CA4
It's included in the service manual that I pointed you towards...

The first post I made, pointed you towards a V-M (Voice of Music) 1200-series changer, model-1242-376
Pull your changer to verify the (exact) model number underneath.

The second post should be your Tuner and Amplifier.

It's 55yrs since your player was manufactured. Maybe it came with th V-M changer, or maybe it was replaced somewhere along the way?

My crystal-ball is in for repair!

If you read my post above I pointed that out and also that the guts (which is what you were looking for a schematic for) should be the same.

GE made those for several years, the first had the VM Changer, the second had the Garrard and then they had the GE changer based on the Glaser Steers that they had purchased.
