Nice original lacquer super 20, with the Serial number 448,xxx dates it to roughly 1969 and from the Eastlake factory era. Current inventory on the market has the lowest available ones landing around $3,200. I want to help this sax to sell fast. Let's talk!
SARGE REBUILD - low playing time!
No major dents to worry about. Biggest negative to me is that the neck is not the silver option, since this does change tone and sound to some unknown degree. I can't verify if Sarge did the neck repair, but the other negative is a pickup was patched. To me that's a minor thing since the neck isn't the silver option. (For what it's worth, acquiring a King neck in silver would cost someone $900-1,600; but the potential of a tone change is not that high of value IMHO.) There are some engraved numbers on the tube ring also, admittingly, I missed them on my first viewing of the sax.
PADS: tan prestini pads with oversized, seamless-flat, nickel resos. Low miles, many many years of life left.
CASE: original King case. Tri-pack option but no clarinet holder.
