Zenith 288 Tombstone (1934)

Zenith 288 Tombstone (1934)
The Zenith 288 was a big, confident step for Zenith in 1933. This radio was one of their first Art Deco "Industrial" designs. Zenith called the 1934 radios the "Challenger Tombstones" challenging anyone to find a better radio on the market. This eight-tube, five-band (AM,SWx3) monster has a lot going for it. AVC, tuned RF, eight inch dynamic speaker and five selectable wave bands. There were six knobs functions from left-to-right: tone control, volume/on/off, tuning (upper), sensitivity/phono-jack-switch (lower) band switch and short wave trimmer. Blake replaced all of the capacitors. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where necessary. A new power cord, audio cable, safety fuse were installed and he rewired the speaker. Gary stripped the cabinet down to the natural wood. There were a few veneer repairs done, and then the refinish was done using high quality products. The Australian Laurel front is a gorgeous contrast to the walnut on the rest of the radio. The classic black trim, and you have on stunning cabinet! This guy is the best! This very rare, stunning Zenith is ready for your collection. 19"H x 16"W x 12"D.  $1,199.00. (1600216)
