(On Consignment - Plays Great!)

Deep, dark original lacquer finish at 90%, triple neckstrap ring. Matching serial number 281k on the neck and body. These Kings have nickel tubing too.

There are some pings on the back bow, a ding in the neck (I think I can remove), and 2 small dents in the bell lip that I can work on also. Overall the sax is in good shape with no major damage to report. The engraving is very crisp so the lacquer coloration can be attributed to the variations that King had at this time (I've even seen original Super 20s with this look).

I love Kings; and these models surely hold their own for those with a good ear.

CASE: Nice Protec, wrapped case, red color.

PADS: Rebuild elsewhere with tan pads and plastic resos (vintage Selmer style).
