Conn 1937 ‘6M VIII’ Eb Alto, #279k (Archived)

SOLD - Serial #279,xxx in good overall shape, original lacquer at about 92%. It has Rolled Tone Holes and the fine tuning neck adjuster. Stamped "VIII"s have been credited for playing better; there's just something about them and the vintage world knows it. The body is in great shape with minor dings in the bow, and one and 3 halves that would get to be called dents. Those will be addressed further along the rebuild process. It arrived in the original wood case that is in decent but functional shape. It could be used but the latches are vintage and moody. 😉 It will get a Vintage Conn Rebuild with flat metal resos on Prestini pads and natural cork throughout. This horn is one of THE examples for all those who love and respect Conn. All included for:

Conn 1932 ‘6M’ Eb Alto, Perma-Gold #251k

$2799.00 - Naked Lady Transitional era: Serial #251,xxx. These have a cult following as the first of the Naked Lady run. Body is in great overall shape. other than the evidence of mess pad glue, there is no past repairs or damage to mention. What a beauty! It has the very rare original, satin/shiny gold finish at 60%...and lots of silver under-plating is visible. (I believe this is a rare perma-gold example, not gold plated). The neck is mostly silver only now. It has Rolled Tone Holes and the fine tuning neck adjuster. It arrived in the original wood case that is in good condition and functional shape--double-pack case for [metal?] clarinet. It will get a Vintage Conn Rebuild with flat metal resos on Prestini pads and natural cork throughout.
