"Have you seen this up on eBay?  Was up at $300, then down, and back up at $270.  It's no beauty, but has some historical interest: https://www.ebay.com/itm/143677059601?ul_noapp=true"

"I believe the remaining ones on my 800B are some sort of decal or sticky paper.  I suspect that if I'm careful I can paint them back on with modelers paint. Thanks"

"Anyone know a source for the dark red triange indicators on the 800B knobs?  I can imagine two solutions: a) paint; b) some sort of gluey paper such as you put on shelves. Thanks"

"Thanks for the advice.  I have the unit at a repair shop, and this is what they told me, so I will check it out.  Could you tell me how you would test such a transformer for shorts?"

Regarding the "late" Super 12.  Means has 2 additional controls for 6 total plus tuning knob. Has 6V6's on the receiver and a one tube power supply with 5U4.

Control layout and round brass escutcheons per my manual insert read thus:

Selectivity                                    TUNIING                      Wave Change

                      A/C & Volume                               Bass

Radio-Phono                                                                   Sensivity

A rare version offered only couple months, I believe in preparation for the successor 14 tube Scott Masterpiece - basically having beefed up audio with added push pull driver stage. I have the 14 tube version and it sounds better, especially with a CD player into the phono input.
