Konrad Birkner † 12.08.2014
Majestic is a name of multiple use. There is terrible confusion in literature about three separate companies.
1) Company Grigsby-Grunow went bankrupt in 1932 and its models ended with the 1933 season. Models were often named Majestic.
2) Company Majestic Radio & Television started in 1933
3) Company General Household Utilities started also in 1933,
Please be extremely careful to distinguish the 3 different manufacturers, in particular for 1933 models.
Followed by my first attempt to analyze the early model 71 from 1928 and to bring in some more information for the model line 60, 70 and 80 I write down what can be found in the Rider's page Majestic 1-24 in the original Rider's binder.
1. Parts with like part number in different assemlies and models are interchangeable, others are not.
2. The following prefixes and model numbers are for 1928 apparatus assemblies:
GB G2 ---Super Dynamic Speaker for 7-B Chassis and 180 Chassis
7-BP-6 Power Pack, 60 cycle for 7-B Chassis only.
