Beautiful Solid Wood Retro Art Deco 1945 RCA Victor Model 56X3 Vacuum Tube Radio Solid Player Solid Construction!
DESCRIPTION: Nice solid wood tabletop tube radio manufactured by RCA Victor in 1945 in excellent working and physical condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without external antenna attachment. Excellent construction and design! Solid wooden curved chunks on all sides with nice grained finish. Few dings, scratches and dents from over the decades from normal wear and tear but not abuse. Original varnish is still glossy condition. This cabinet is one of the chunkiest wood designs I've seen. Square and hefty and solid looking. No missing chunks or pieces. No separated joints or repairs. No cracks, chips, or discoloration. The original knobs are brown bakelite securely attached. This radio is over 75 years old! All the dial numbering and lettering is crisp and clear. Dial light is new replacement and lights up brightly! The tuning and volume dials work fine. No slipping. The unit powers on and off with a definitive click. All out of spec capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. The brand new replacement power cord and plug with no cracks, or splits or electrical tape repair. No exposed wiring. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. All wiring has been thoroughly checked for possible bridging and weak solder connection. Comes from non-smoking, mature, clean professional environment.
