Conn 1936 ‘Chu-Transitional-12M’ Eb Baritone, #271k

$5,999.00 - For the Gerry Mulligan lovers! ... Ser#271k, Original finish at 90%--color is great! LADY FACE/Naked Lady pentagram engraved on the bell.  It needs a rebuild.  She arrived with lots of dents and dings. I'll work those out.  The neck ring was replaced with a 1940s king zephyr three-ring neckstrap ring (this is actually a good thing for you players). The only other 'bad' worth mentioning, is the Opt F# guard has been lost. I have found a 12M replacement part!! (in bare brass).  There are some dents on the back side that I want to improve and the body tube will straighten during the rebuild; I have no worry there. Case: currently has the Conn-wrapped original. Let's talk about upgrading this...$300? 
Let's get it rebuilt with a WWS Rebuild ($1200+) and let's talk about the special rebuild details you want on this one.  larger brass resos?!? This sax will be a great player with a huge tone!; don't forget the insane market-desire on this model for the Collector in you.

Other: ‘No Name’ Baritone, Rubber, (RAC Reface) – 0.105″

$269.00 - A great large chamber mouthpiece made of hard rubber mouthpiece from the golden era. The original tip was refaced by Bob. Notice the lower walls cutout for comfort - cool! Other notes: There is a "France" marking on the side. And Bob expertly filled in a tooth groove. There is a small nick in the shank but its of no concern since the metal band is a great part of this era - it protects!
Baffle: it is more scooped out (lower) than a Conn Eagle. Very low baffle.
