Seeburg Q100 Jukebox

The 1950s were the Silver Age of jukeboxes and the Seeburg boxes manufactured during this time were considered the best engineered and made by many jukebox fans and collectors. First released in November 1959, the Seeburg Q100 is a Select-O-Matic jukebox that can hold 50 45’s for a total of 100 selections. It also plays 33½ rpm records with three selections per side. The 33½ rpm albums were a standard 7 inches in diameter, with a smaller center hole like on the 45s.

1959 Seeburg Jukebox

A new cabinet design was introduced with this model. This was one of the last Seeburg designs where the playing mechanism was visible. The graphics were getting larger on the newer models, and began to restrict the window space for displaying the inner workings of the jukebox.

Restored Seeburg Q100

This is a jukebox we restored that we no longer own. On the display at the back of the jukebox was space to list additional song titles. There is also an ad for the LP titled “Elvis Sails”. This album had recordings of the press interviews with Elvis when he enlisted in the US Army, just before he sailed from the Brooklyn Army Terminal in Brooklyn, New York on September 22, 1958. The album was released in December 1958. Graphics like this could be replaced on the jukebox, as new ads became available.

This item is not for sale. We show restored items in this blog to encourage discussion, prompt questions and further the hobby of collecting and restoration. We also enjoy sharing the photos of the many items we have restored over the years.

    We do not do appraisals or give value estimations of machines. To get an idea what yours is worth, it may help to scan online auction sites or talk with other collectors either in our forum or at flea markets or meets.

    I purchased my Seeburg in Nov. 1966. I’ve had it in storage. It still lights up but will not change the record. It still looks good! I was trying to see if it was worth repairing. After the repair, will it hold its value?
    Thank-you,
    Bill

    William,
    Naturally, a fully functioning Jukebox is more desirable. The decision to make the repairs is one you should make based on whether you plan on using the machine. If you’re thinking of selling it, we do not give value estimations. This could be determined by talking with other collectors, but it is always a variable, based on the economy and the rarity of the model.
