From "Blazing Saddles" comes another Jim Dennis Quote of the Day: "What's a dazzling urbanite like you doing in a rustic setting like this?" Thanks Clevon Little to Gene Wilder for the quote and thanks Arvin for this really beautiful...are you ready for this - Bakelite Arvin "Urbanite!" Yes, I swear it's true! Maybe that's where Mel Brooks got the line! Next question; what color is it? Here's a hint: there was Ivory, Willow Green, Sandalwood and Coral. If you guessed Coral you're absolutely right! A few minor scratches. Incredible condition for its age! Electronically reconditioned with new paper and electrolytic capacitors and all out of tolerance resistors replaced. The five tubes are in good shape. I've added an external antenna wire for increased station sensitivity. A Jim Dennis Scale of Beauty "Dazzling Urbanite" Special! And, if you'd like additional pictures please let me know. 9-3/4"W x 6"H x 4-3/4'D.
