Original finish with original neck. These are the last of the Zephyr line and built after factory move. The tone is fully "zephyr" and King. There were small mechanical changes to the ergos and keywork designs. And minor cost cutting measures, like removing non-essential adjustment screws on the the F# bridge.

PADS: tan with Nylon resos (plastic with the pointed cone) are in good shape overall with some showing use but there's a ton of line in most all of them.

CASE: yes. King hard case

BONUS: Selmer s80 "D" mouthpiece ($100-180 value). Hard rubber, script in great condition. Tip work looks like there's slight evidence of tip refacing work. Currently measures 0.076". (True vintage D's measure 074, so this is growing into a D* tip). [currently not play-tested]
