    Question White JBL Metregon

    Hello. First post here. I'm considering buying this white JBL Metregon. Do you think the white is original. Seems like it may have been offerered in a white piano finish at one time. Thanks for your input.

    Shows up in the 1964 catalog with tawny walnut, oiled walnut, mahogany, and ebony as the available finishes.

    But legs aside, all of the images I find online have the cutout for the crossover(s) more towards the center of the enclosure, not as far outboard as your pic. And there are pics of one painted black on a Korean site, I see no other white examples in an image search.

    Wardsweb came across a kit built one painted white - and noted that the back panels were put on backwards

    So it could be a kit build and the back panels were put on upside down and backwards, I guess.

    Well, it may not be original, but it looks nice. Have you heard it? They are very “vintage” sounding for better or worse.
