A friend of mine just sent me this picture. It is a EH Scott radio with a tuning eye and chrome chassis. I am waiting for a call back from his with the model number. It looks similar to the Masterpiece to me. Does anyone know the model? He bought it for $50 and it is 100% and works, according to him.

Unfortunately, the picture did not post. If you can send me the serial number, I may be able to provide the model from that. Thanks!

I THINK its a 7 knob version of the 1938 circa Super XII. The 12 was unique in that it had the tubes all on 1 chassis so there would be 3 tubes in the back without any chrome tube covers and a big chromed transformer next to them on the corner. There were 5 knob and 7 knob versions and also a special 2 chassis version with 1 tube on the separate amp chassis.

Later in 1938, Scott bought out the assets of McMurdo Silver's bankrupt company. He elected to continue the Masterpiece name so the XII got upgraded with 2 more tubes to a total of 14 and went back to 2 separate chassis.

The reason I think yours is the XII is the squared metal escutcheons on the 5 upper knobs similar to my 5 knob XII. Both of my Masterpieces have round ones under all 7 knobs.

The confirmation will on the back of the chassis with the transformer and uncovered tubes.

$50 for any complete and working Scott is a steal. I'd buy it, no matter what model it is.

Now I see the picture....this is interesting. It is a Super XII dial face, yet the knob layout is that of a Masterpiece. Bruce...I've never seen a 7 knob S-12...the serial number would be a huge help. A photo of the set from the back would also be great.

BTW...it is in a low end Scott cabinet, the Braemar.

Kent, et al:

That is the variation of the Super XII in my collection.

I have the same Super 12 in a Braemar cabinet with two chassis. Still waiting to get restored out in the garage. I have to dig up the serial number and sent it to you Kent.
