Zenith 5-S-127 Tombstone (1937)


Zenith 5-S-127 Tombstone (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Everyone wants this Zenith! This model has been one of the most desired and collected radios we have offered for sale. A mid-sized tombstone that really exemplifies Art Deco design. This five-tube, three-band (SB, SWx2) features that famous big, black dial and new innovations and design for 1937. We went in and restored the chassis by replacing all of the wax/paper capacitors with new Mylar caps. The tubes and low-voltage resistors have been tested and replaced as needed. A new line cord, fuse, Bluetooth input jack and a precise alignment have been applied, making this a sensitive, great-playing Zenith. Gary has refinished the cabinet with grain filler, toners and lacquer, just as it was done in the 1930's for that original "piano" finish. The original knobs, speaker and chassis are with the set. A new, reproduction grille cloth was added. These Zenith tombstone radios don't come up for sale that often, and when they do, they are gone in hours! 19"H x 13"W x 9"D.
