Wells Gardner 6100 & Electrohome G08 Neck Boards

One of each, the WG6100 neck board is cracked
$100.00

Pair of original color vector arcade monitor neck boards.  Listing includes a Wells Gardner 6100 Neck board that is cracked in half and missing its tube socket and a few components.  This one is definitely a fixer upper, could probably be brought back with some work.

Also include is an Electrohome G08 neck board (Part #50-1636-001). This one is in better shape, appears to be complete. The wires were snipped but otherwise in good condition, just a little dusty. 

Both boards are untested and sold as-is, see photos for more details.

Quick Game Facts
Tempest

In Tempest, you control a "shooter" that is moved around the outside of a fixed track. In many cases, this looks like a "tube" drawn in three dimensions. Enemies come up the tube, and you have to destroy them, and (hopefully) avoiding them if they make it all the way up to the top. You control your shooter with a spinner, shoot with a fire button, and you're given a "super-zapper" to use once on each level.

Coin-Op Overview

Tempest is one of the most collectible games. By many accounts, it is collected even more than games like Dragon's Lair and Pac-Man.

Later, a software (ROM change) was created that has new levels. It's called Tempest Tubes, and can be played by changing a few programmed ROMs.
