A great horn for a player, gigger, conn-lover...etc! In lacquer, it's potentially a one-time relacquer. I say this because 1) lacquer wasn't used until about 1934, and 2) the lack of engraving leads me to believe that the sax was potentially nickel or bare brass from the factory. HINT: Let's do a custom restoration and engraving! There's some bumps and dings in the body, bow and bell. I'll burnish these out with love the best I can. Also there are a few ring resolders, mixed-matched springs, and guard resolder marks too.
OPTIONS: I'm considering this sax for a Silver Restoration because the bell is bare -- We can add a beautiful, custom-floral engraving. The price would go up significantly, but so would the beauty and 'wow factor'.
CASE: used protec in good condition. Just add a little extra padding for a secure fit.
REBUILD: a WWS Standard Rebuild included in the price. I recommend huge resonators (upgrade possible) and pads to match your playing environment.
