    Crystal question...

    Quick question, I did an advanced search and could not find exactly what I am looking for.

    With the vintage Sub300t were all of them manufactured with glass crystals or were some also made with plastic crystals?

    The Sub 300 "no T" were manufactured with plastic crystals. I think all models after that were manufactured with glass. So, only the REALLY early models had plastic. Let me put it like this..........The vintage pieces that had domed crystals were plastic. All the flat 300T crystals were glass. (AFAIK)

    HTH

    Here is a picture of my sub 300 "no T"

    Hi

    as Jason explained only the very first series from 1967 had the domed acrylic glass. For me it looks more vintage but can be scratched easily. (But with polywatch they can be buffed out without problems).
    All following models had the flat mineral glass

    @Jason: old sharky in top condition! I love the '67series
