    I know what it really is but I need to know how it compares to a transistor radio in audio quality.

    Yeah I figured it out after post #2, too, but didn't want to spoil the fun.
    Audio quality?
    This is for collectible and oddball appeal.
    I'd be surprised if audio quality is even a consideration.
    But given the likely construction I suspect yes it's equal to the finest transistor radios Japan had to offer in 1965.

    Jeez, the least you could have done was wipe the dust from the disintegrating foam speaker grille off of it!

    Given that every one I saw on the net didn't even have the foam anymore, I think the dust may be the only thing holding it together.
    In fact I bet the little black flecks all over it are actually particles of foam decay.
    Kinda like radioactivity.
    Eventually it'll all just disappear.

    I’m thinking a guitar would be louder without that thing plugged into it.
