This desktop dock for your iphone / ipod classic is built from an 80's General Electric radio. What first grabbed us about this radio was how the station indicator was shaped like an Apple device, which lead to the thought..."hmmm, I wonder if I could..."

To create this one of a kind dock, we started by removing the original electronics and tinny speaker and replacing them with a modern 3 watt amp and speaker. The am-fm tuner was also removed to make room for the new dock. The sound is great for such a tiny unit. A new volume control and power switch were added to the side and we wired it to charge your Apple device while docked.

The original plastic cabinet was then cut apart and reconstructed to drop your iphone or ipod classic down in front of the original station indicator. To do this, we had to move the indicator back about 2 inches. (sounds easy, right?) The original back of the radio was removed and repurposed as a base and a new back was fabricated.

Finally, we repainted the case a bright tangerine with a white speaker grill and added a green LED power indicator light to let you know when it's switched on.

The end result is a vibrant and funky little dock that will bring some sunshine to your desk or nightstand.
