Vintage Grundig Majestic Shortwave Radio 1956/57

First, let me say up front that I know nothing about radios especially shortwave radios, but it is pretty cool looking. I will describe it as best I can and if t is an expert out t who knows anything about it, please let me know and I will post the information.

I have a Grundig Majestic Model 4090 USA, made in W. Germany. It is 300 OHM, FM 13 Circuits, AM 8 Circuits. It's a large table top model measuring approximately 28" long x 11 1/2" wide x 14" tall. It weighs almost 37 lbs. It has all sorts of knobs, dials and buttons.

I would say the condition is pretty fair for being 50+ years old. T is quite a bit of crazing and needs a good cleaning. I plugged it in and got nothing so obviously it doesn't work. This would be a great restoration project for someone interested in old radios.

Now, comes the very boring, BUT extremely important follow on information

( Please read in its entirety prior to bidding )...

Please check out all pictures & ask any questions prior to bidding as t is no return policy for changing one's mind. I do offer a full, money-back guarantee (minus shipping & handling) if it is determined I have grossly misrepresented an item's condition. But keep in mind, most of the items I sell are previously owned and will most likely show normal wear & tear. Also, I am not an expert on all things vintage or antique. I must rely on what information is given to me by the previous owner. Should you have a problem, I would appreciate the opportunity to correct it prior to the posting of negative feedback. In turn, I will do the same. Also, please be aware that I am a smoker and tfore items I've had in my home for long periods of time may initially have a cigarette odor. I will do my best to minimize this.

I usually ship within 3 days of confirmed payment. I ship via the most economical & safe means to the customer.

I am extremely diligent & spare no costs when it comes to safely packing an item for shipment, insuring said item and purchasing confirmation of shipment. I have undercharged in these areas on numerous occasions, sometimes negating any profit. While I have no desire or intentions of making money on shipping & handling, I can no longer afford to lose money. Tfore, my shipping & handling charges in the future will more accurately reflect actual charges. Whenever possible, I will combine shipping costs on additional items purchased.

International bidders contact seller for shipping & handling costs prior to bidding.

I inspect all items for damage prior to shipping. If I discover damage to a piece I did not see in the initial listing, I will disclose this information to the winning bidder & let them make the determination if they still wish to purchase the item or have their money refunded. Should an item be damaged in transit, I will fill out the necessary insurance paperwork & mail it, the insurance receipt and any supporting documentation to the receiver for filing. It will be the receiver's responsibility to file the claim with the post office or UPS. Be sure to keep all packing supplies until claim has been settled.
