A lovely King Zephyr tenor in lacquer. Nice case. This is a very vibrant and pretty sax. The lacquer color is a deep yellow and the shine pops - see photos!

The lacquer was quick tricky on this one as some Kings had shading and poor prep from the factory. However, the proof on this one for me was the very light wear under the lacquer at a few touch points. It was very hard to see! So this one is a "very good/nice relacquer" because they preserved the engraving very well also. Matching serial #292k on the front side of the neck.

PADS: are older and look like the original era (king-style resonators tell me this). Although old, that quality was amazing! Expect to plan for a rebuild in the nearer years depending on your use and budget.

CASE: a brand new Protec case!
