Friend of mine has a Technics SL1800 TT with an Ortofon VMS 3E cart on in good condition.

Can anyone give me a value for it as he's looking to sell it, I may put it on here for him?

In very good condition, I’ve seen these go for around £200 on a good day. 
I don't know the condition really as not seen it yet so if I said £150ish depending on condition does that sound about right?

Doesn’t sound unreasonable mate. It’s the old saying, it’s worth what someone is prepared to pay. I sold one of my turntables last week for £350 but I’d been watching them sell for around £250 so I was lucky. Pictures tell a 1000 words

Looks to be in very nice original condition. In that condition, I would have thought somewhere between £200 - £250 would be nearer the mark. But as the saying goes, it’s worth what someone will pay for it, GLWTS. Love my SL-1700.

Put a Audio-Technica VM95 cartridge on it and it would make a lovely backup or second system deck. You know it makes sense !! 🤫
