"This make sense to me as the XXII is the only Scott with just 1 chassis and a single speaker. I am doing exactly the same thing with a custom cabinet called the Heron. There was only room for the single Scott XII chassis and the speaker in…"

Scott Super XII

"Yeah, found it this way. I have known about this radio since the late 1970's and didn't have the opportunity to acquire it until maybe the mid 1990's. The guy I bought it from purchased it from an old TV repair shop in Billing, MT.…"

"Yeah, a little unusual to see a Philly in a Tasman, however I did see one in a photo years ago on some web site. The photo came out a little over exposed, cabinet looks better in person, although not the original finish or grill clothe. Measures a…"

"You have the only other Philly sized Tasman I have seen. I restored an up-sized Tasman and recut the panel for my Pointer Philly. Scott didn't offer that cabinet for very long during the Philharmonic era."

Scott Super XII

"Ah!  Merle So that is what the entire cabinet looks like.  I had spotted the corner of it in a other cabinet photo some years ago. Must be about the only Super XII in a table cabinet. Find it that way?"

Hi Merle,

Some very nice examples. What is the story on the early Super XII in the tombstone table cabinet?
