It is real but is missing key parts so it would not be worth much. I have passed up complete wooden sets that were under $100 . 25 years ago they would have been worth it.

Dare I say...
...if it was cheap enough it would make a great kitchen spice rack. Leave it exactly as is, mount it, spices inside, no damage done. It would certainly be a conversation piece.

Now that is a very novel way of upcycling! Great idea!

Not too concerned about Magnetos and the like missing. Mic, seems complete as does the rest of the exterior. Externally in good shape too.
