I worked at a station, WAGR/WJSK Lumberton, NC which had a Scully 280 the likes of which I've never seen. I'm a member of the Yahoo Scully group and once queried what I'm about to tell you and I recieved a less than satisfactory reply. This 280 had grey plastic embelishments as oposed to the ubiquetous black and white steel embelishments covering the transport controls. This Scully was crated up and sent to Skokie, Ill (1980). for refurbishment and, when it was recieved, a Scully representative called to say it was a hand built prototype. A Scully group member said it was your typical 280. I beg to differ because I've seen a lot of Scullys, but have never seen one like this one. It was mono 1/4 track. 3/34-7/12 ips and I wish I had a picture.
