    Arrow FS: Yashica GS

    Hi Guys,

    I have a very special item that I'm selling. It is a Yashica GS rangefinder that has been completely overhauled.

    I had the best guy in the business (Russ from camerarefurb.com) source a GS for me, then he proceeded to completely overhaul the camera which included the following:

    - Change light seals
    - Polish chrome
    - Clean lenses (assumes no fungus on lenses. Fungus may or may not be removable)
    - Clean/adjust rangefinder and top glass
    - Refurb dusty/faded leatherette
    - Clean out interior of camera (Dust, film chips, bugs, mice, etc.)
    - Lube and adjust as necessary
    - Restore electrical continuity
    - Clean electrical contacts
    - Change POD (we use neoprene rubber which will not deteriorate like the original)


    After this, I had Russ replace the camera covering with the finest mahogany leather from cameraleather.com. Here is the link:

    Finally, I had Russ paint the "Electro 35" logo on the top plate to a white color for a nice, clean look.

    As you can imagine, the camera is in perfect working condition!

    I paid over $150 for this camera (plus over 2 months of waiting). Less than 1 roll was used in this camera and I would love to keep it, but I need the money right now and it has just been collecting dust. I am asking $130 for it and it would be a great addition to anybody's collection.



    Thanks for looking,
    Wes

    Wow, that is an absolutely beautiful specimen! I am too used to shooting digital (had a Electro 35 at one time), otherwise I would love this camera. The Electro 35 is a really nice camera.

    Good luck with your sale-

    Very pretty -- and tempting. I always wanted one when I was a kid. Definitely a childhood wish fulfillment thing.

    Thanks for the kind words, guys. This was my first rangefinder camera. I really loved the look of the Electro series (as well as the aperture priority) and I really wanted to make this one nice. Though I barely used it, I can say that it is a fantastic camera.
