This is the first 12s266 that I was able to get my hands on for restoration. I have refinished many zenith radios before including the famous 16a61 stratosphere, I must say that this cabinet has some beautiful book matched veneer. My customer will be very happy with the results of this refinish job and the electrical work that Dick Morgan has done to get this Beautiful zenith back to its former glory. Just in time for the holidays.
