Martin 1946 ‘The Martin Tenor’ Bb Tenor, #158k (Archived)

1946 "The Martin Tenor"

Price: $Sold
  • Year:  1946
  • Make:  Martin
  • Model: "The Martin Tenor"
  • Status:  Sold!
  • Finish: original Lacquer
  • Serial Number: 158,xxx

Named: "Leopard" for her beautiful vintage spots, Serial number 158,xxx, numbers match on the neck and body. The older "The Martin" the deeper and fuller the tone and any "15xk" serial numbers are hard to see, especially in original condition. This one is in +65% original lacquer and will be considered a great player's horn. It has had several solder repairs and some dent work, heaviest solder work a side-C tone hole. We will burnish the neck some more to its best smoothness too. It has a non-original, vintage case that is a tri-pack--no clarinet shelf, flute set intact--in barely fair condition. It will get a "French Standard" rebuild, with flat metal resos; considering that she's an earlier original AND I had to pay a fortune for her, we have to sell her for:  SOLD
