The Magna's extra features are an adjustable octave mechanism screw to control the height of the octave key, an extra big and comfy LH thumb pearl, adjustable bow and bell key felts and extra rollers on the G# table. This one is RMC, so it does have the "Roundtable" crest on it. With the right pad and reso setup in them, these can be the worlds best Bebop' tenors. The sound of the Magna is not much different than any other Committees, but they do have the advantage of a silver cross to ward off attack by Vampires! Great, rare Pro horns, big ol' fat sound, unlike any other...
This one is original lacquer with a few bumps and dings that will get love during a rebuild. Comes with original end plug! Some past repair notes: a well done neck tenon solder, a resolder to do on C1 guard. It's serial # is 208,3xx, on the body and neck, so it's made in 1959.
CASE: original case in ok functionality but a little rough.
Purchase will include a full WWS Rebuild that you get to help shape and choose the options.
