This is a great player’s vintage King Super 20 tenor sax in original lacquer, serial number 343160. It is fantastic original condition showing off very nice original lacquer. The Super 20 is also sporting the classic King engraving across the bell area and the sunburst print on the B and Bb keys. All of the original pearl inlays and rollers are intact and in great condition. The original double socket sterling silver neck with matching serial number stamp is included with the horn. Some of the original gold lacquer spray is also still visible on the neck.
This tenor has some typical finish wear for its vintage but its physical body is in outstanding condition. It has no history of major dent work and has had zero re-solders. The body tube, bow and bow cap are all in great shape. The bell flare is in perfect condition and has never been pulled down. The backside clothes guard was presumably lost at some point, but it was replaced with an authentic King guard, though the "newer" one is nickel instead of lacquer.
This saxophone was professionally set-up in the Saxquest shop in 2019. It is still in great shape and is playing up a storm. The current set of Valentino pads and metal domed resonators are all in terrific condition. We will also check the horn out in our shop once more before shipping to ensure it ships in perfect playing condition.
