How fabulously cool is this? Ever see another like it? I sure haven’t, other than the time we sold it to its last owner so long ago that I fairly jumped when he brought it back to me for sale. Aluminum resonator cone on a wood body? Tone that can't be beat. And those lightning-bolt sound holes? C’mon! And calling it Radio-Tone? Back in the 1920s-30s, when radio was new and it was king and it was a wonder to so much of America, putting the word “Radio” on anything gave it an air of super-modern and super cool. And that paper overlay on the fingerboard with all them notes and “Genuine Chromatic Chart” wrote right on it? And even better, way down at the end:

Hollywood, Calif. Registered 1929 

You cannot beat this, nohow. And on top of all that, it sounds FAB. Comes with its original chipboard case and a modern Stevens-type steel bar. Off-the-charts unique old-time original cool for only $1495 w/ossc
