Jackson-Bell 60 "Sunburst" (1930)
(wood tube cathedral radio)

Jackson-Bell 60 "Sunburst" (1930)

NEW!Here is a seldom seen West Coast, seven-tube TRF set that works well with a long wire antenna...the longer, the better which is usually the case on radios this old (93 years). I currently have approx. 10-ft (will include) and have been listening to it for an hour or so. It is an older restore, having been in my collection for 8-10 years. The cabinet is solid and was refinished when I first got it as were the electronics. The only anomaly I noticed is with the volume & tone controls are both a little sensitive or "touchy," but with a little toggling they both work good for good reception. This is called "Sunburst" for obvious reasons. This beauty has original Lansing speaker & also knobs & factory wooden back. Take note of the Jackson Bell Corp. guarantee still intact on the back (have never seen that before...neat). Also factory sticker on that very clean chassis. Jackson-Bell was a family owned business & rather interesting story whether you like the radios or not. It started in 1926 but ceased in 1935. It is written that Jackson-Bell was a marketing company and the maker was Gilfillan Brothers Radio Works, Los Angeles. 16"H x 14"W x 10"D.  $429.00. (1640288)
