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:


You CANNOT find another 1930s 6M "VIII" with a pro rebuild for this price!
