- Finish: Original Lacquer
- Serial Number: 216,75x
(On Consignment - Plays Great!)
Original lacquer finish at 90%, Matching serial number 216k on the neck and body. This horn has a very nice, sweet tone.
It does have a few scratches shown in the photos. No known resolders to mention. You may notice the two different hues of lacquer (bell vs bow), and I have seen this before on Super 20s; I see this trait as fully original. (See my WWS Zephyr Special with the similar trait.)
I love Kings; and these models surely hold their own for those with an ear like mine.
CASE: Original case in great condition. (missing one corner of leather cap)
PADS: Rebuilt elsewhere with tan pads and plastic resos (vintage Selmer style).
