Scott 800B

Found by my wife over 25 years ago at the Treasure Mart this unit is a beautiful example of

Made in the USA.

Date code's show this unit was built around May of 1947.

Paperwork included the original book and Station tags and a letter from a music store in Kansas City where this unit was exchanged for an earlier unit under warranty

When we got the Scott it was in a very large wooden cabinet. Sad to say the cabinet had been neglected and was in such bad shape that it simply could not be saved and it's size was another problem. The original Jensen Speaker had also turned to dust.

So there was little choice but to scrap the cabinet.

After scraping the cabinet I placed the unit in a modern Glass rack and back in the 80's I went thru the unit and had it playing like a champ.

I played it rarely but time took it's toll and earlier this year I knew it was due for another work over and a good cleaning.

These units are exceptional AM and FM tuners and the audio is truly HiFi.

The pre RIAA phono section is perfect for 78's.
