Vintage C.G. Conn Silver Plate 6M VIII Naked Lady Alto Sax, Serial #298226
Silver Naked Lady Conn
This is a fantastic C.G. Conn silver plated 6M VIII alto sax, serial number 298226. The Conn is very quick in response to air flow and features a nice a punchy sound with a slightly brighter color. It was professionally maintained quite nicely by the previous owner. The key action feels great under the fingers allowing for easy movement and comfort from top to bottom. Its low register is full and the sonic character remains consistent all the way into the palm keys. The previous owner also added a second hook for the neck strap for added versatility and comfort.
The body of the saxophone is in very good condition. It shows no history of major past repairs to the body. The alto was at some point re-finished in silver. Its current silver finish has a super clean look and is nicely complemented by the classic Conn “Naked Lady” engraving. The saxophone does include the original Conn neck with double socket receiver and under-slung octave key.
This saxophone is currently being checked out in our repair shop and ships out in perfect playing condition with a vintage Conn wood case.
