The gold plating looks to be about 75% intact and the photos will help see her beauty. No need to talk this resume up - I'm sure you know how special these are. Highly sought after 1) GOLD 2) PORTRAIT model 3) "Chu Berry" Tenor. Overall condition is "very good". The pearls are not heavily worn either. Wear on the gold is present on the touch points as you'd expect; plus the thumb hook and palm holding zone across the bell front. I see 2 solders (both F-3 palm posts), and some mild repairs to the neck, as well as neck finish. The neck looks like it got 're-gold plate'. Please ask me how you would like me to address the gold finish throughout, as I can do some spot plating on the thinner areas (NOTE: we would want to do several areas if you chose to do this.)
Comes with worn, gold Ligature and body end plug! (I am unsure about the mouthpiece cap being original)
CASE: Original hard in fair condition, due to age etc.
REBUILD: included and needed. I recommend our Vintage Standard Rebuild unless you want something with more of an upgrade to blow the doors down. Let's Talk!
