Stewart-Warner started incorporating multiple types of veneers and ornate grilles on their mid-size tombstones a year or two before some of the other manufacturers. They already has a great reputation of producing quality electronics, so this was another feather in their cap! This five-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) set was a solid performer, producing great fidelity and volume through its original 8-inch speaker. Blake replaced all of the capacitors with new equivalents. Tested resistors and tubes replacing where necessary. He wired in a new SB antenna. This radio actually has a separate antenna for shortwave as well. A new power cord, safety fuse and audio cable were installed, and he aligned the radio for top performance. This radio has a gorgeous cabinet, and Gary has made it shine. He stripped the veneer, Birdseye maple, Australian laurel, walnut and regular maple. He applied grain filler and toner, finishing with several coats of lacquer. This radio has a gorgeous "piano" lacquer finish. The original knobs and a new period correct grille cloth were used. This is one beautiful radio, one that any collector would love! 17-1/2"H x 14"W x 9-1/2"D.
