For the Gerry Mulligan lovers! ... Ser#245k, relacquer finish at 95%--color is deep and glossy! No engraving (only the "CG Conn LTD") which means this was a 'cheaper' order at that time, HA! Nothing really bad to report. It's going to sell fast.
Case: A $900 Walt Johnson case to protect it well.
Rebuild: Rebuilt with very large, oversized Brass Resos and nice tan pads. Listen to the sound files on this below!
