(On Consignment-Plays great) ser#13xxx, by a JK chart, i figured this one to be a 1938-9 model, but i misspoke and should have trusted my gut. it's about 1959. It has Rolled Tone Holes. It is in rather great shape and the engraving looks excellent. There is one missing pearl on the Bb keyguard (cosmetic only). The original lacquer at 85% and the keys appear to be solid nickel and have mostly faded to that dull silver look. The neck screw is a replacement however it works great. This Stencil will contain some of the Keilwerth body and warmth, but I think it plays a bit brighter than JK, AND save your pocket book on the price. Come quick! This was rebuilt elsewhere and the pads seal well and have lots of life left. I will go through the sax and tune it up to play great for the next loving home. Comes is a Super Cool vintage, two-tone case! I think it's pretty sweet. (Thanks to my friend, Helen @ BassicSax for identification help!)
