Jukebox - A coin-operated phonograph, typically in a gaudy, illuminated cabinet, having a variety of records that can be selected by push button. - That's what the dictionary thinks a Jukebox, Juke Box or Collectable Jukeboxes are, but if you're like me you will know there's something special about a quality old jukebox. Finest quality restored vintage 1950's Juke-boxes are a prime example. Owning a Jukebox from the silver age is often the goal of anyone who knows their boxes.
There were a whole number of jukebox manufacturers from Ami to RockOla. Rockola Jukeboxs were very popular, as were Seeburg juke-boxes and Wurlitzer's - more than just a ride at the theme park, Wurlitzer Jukeboxes have become almost the stereotypical name associated with vintage jukeboxes.
Often if you have restored your own jukebox, or perhaps brought a jukebox for sale at auction it can even earn you money. Period drama's, films and other tv programs often lead to the tv companies requirement to hire vintage and more modern jukeboxes, and if you're the nearest owner of a well restored Wurlitzer jukebox then you could be able to earn some money from your jukebox.
You can even buy jukeboxs that have been upgraded with more modern operating technology - for example there are Rock-Ola Jukeboxes available with cd, mp3 and even ipod powered jukeboxes. So if you are that way inclined you can own some jukebox heritage while maintaining a modern technology. Its the best of the golden age of jukeboxes mixed with the best modern technology can offer!
