Nice original lacquer super 20, with the Serial number 325,692.  These have a lot of nice features, like  pearls on all the keys and Sterling Silver, sleeve style neck, but what i really love is the rich, big tone.  Super 20's are more or less divided up into 3 categories, early, middle and late production, this one falls in the middle and has a great balance of sound.  The King horns sure get my vote and i gig with them often. This one was rebuilt with thick brass resonators, oversized, I believe originally from a TM setup.

Chadd comments: This was Sarge's choice tenor for his last few gigs. He had a love affair with the Super 20 that in simply viewed by the public as "acceptable". We all wish we could be cheating on our daily player with a prime era, tear-drop G#, beauty like this one. The resonators are a huge booster!
