A ONE-OWNER HORN. She's pretty. Need I say more? Ser #218k, ORIGINAL FINISH at 95%, with mostly original pads. Kept in the closest for the past 30 years. No high F# on this one, but it a gorgeous example that I know you'd be proud to call your own.

For such a pretty horn, there was one old story that caused some repairs to mention: the neck discloses some side lacquer cracking lines indicating past pull-down (we have not touched the angle of the neck on arrival, it is slightly 'upward'). The there is ping-dent on the F key cup that can be worked on and removed during a pad change. There was some post/body repair on the lower Opt.F# post and the upper Eb/C post-ribbing. Eb guard has 2 resolders on the feet(lower once still needs done).

CASE: The original case is even plush inside. (typical, one selmer zippers lost their pull-tabs; they operates just fine though.)

REBUILD: Vintage Standard Rebuild included in this price. Or Ask about an "as is" price on this one.
