HELP, I Want One!

Repair Man Special
This is a vintage C.G. Conn New Wonder “Chu Berry” alto saxophone in silver plate, serial number 220451. The Chu is a classic alto saxophone from the swing period and make great free blowing saxophones when they are all done up. This one in particular has a ton of potential but came to us on very old pads and will ultimately need a complete overhaul before it is ready for playing. It is currently in line for a complete restoration in our repair shop, and once completed, will ship out in perfect playing shape with all new pads and material. 
The body of the sax is in very nice condition over all. It features nice silver plating, finger nail file G#, trill G# and rolled tone holes. There is no history of serious solder repair or dent work but there are currently a few smaller dings on the most notably horn above the bow area, which we will remove and clean up during our overhaul. The bow cap itself is in very good condition. The original neck on the saxophone is with the sax featuring the Conn Micro tuner.
If you are looking to get into a classic alto at a low price these Chu altos are always a nice way to go.
