SPECS: Rolled Tone holes! (RTH). The late-war era and last of the RTH Conns can bring a little different output from the factory. I'll admit that I was questioning the original finish on this one. The engraving started to look a little more faint (yet, the 1950s became less deep also). So the color matches and there is no guaranteed proof to say otherwise, therefore I see this as original finish. There is some red-brass coloration on the neck and bell rim. I have the chemical to treat that may help minimize that boldness, if not help it disappear by +50%. Just remind/ask me.

PADS: Conn style with flat metal resos. Repad was very recently done; work was done by a local WA repair tech.

TONE: Rich and crisp like a 6M.

CASE: YES - TBD
