Overall Quality Scale
Good to Very Good
Flaws or Defects: Text is not real crisp and clear. Akai printed them with a small and thin font. Our *original* is an aftermarket reprint that wasn't done as well as we do them and had some dark areas that sort of looked like a highlighter had been used on their original. Ours is restored to center folded and center stapled format and had an *extensive* cleanup of defects, removal of non-English text and miscellaneous unnecessary items. Most but not all of the shaded areas are gone now. There are a few places where particular letters in words are almost not there. In spite of all the above, the manual is attractive, overall clean, and is not at all difficult to read.
Notes: Akai printed the originals in a multi-language format. This is the English language section. List price was approximately $800.00 in 1982-1984. ADDITIONAL NOTE: We don't currently have a GX-636 User Manual, but this GX-646 User Manual would make a very suitable substitute as the machines are highly similar with only minor differences.
