Jeffery, what is the little single tube module to the right of the tuner chassis? All beautiful radios, by the way! I have an AM-FM Philharmonic in a Georgian cabinet with a Garrard RC-60 changer. I fitted a GE VR magnetic cartridge in it and a single tube preamp. It has the Jensen high fidelity speaker system.

Should be a one stage audio preamp, but not likely an E H  Scott preamp.  By 1939, Scott normally  shipped a Garrard phono with a high quality "tone adjusted" crystal cartridge, although Scott could provide an upgraded Garrard with a magnetic pickup.

The GE variable reluctance pick up is a high quality but low output cartridge. I think of the the mono version as a 1950's pickup, before stereo entered the market place late 1950s. Tracking would be lighter than the late 1930's phono era.
