HELP, I Want One!

This is an outstanding original lacquer King Super 20 tenor saxophone, serial #352464. It has just been overhauled in the Saxquest repair shop by King Super 20 guru George Bunk and is an incredible player. The Saxquest professional overhaul includes brand new Valentino pro pads, metal resonators, corks, felts and precisely regulated key work. 
This tenor is in tremendous physical condition showing standard cosmetic character for its vintage. The original lacquer is extremely nice shape across the horn. There is even still some of the original lacquer spray on the palm keys and adjustment rods. It does also show the King sunburst pattern on the B and Bb bell keys. The original sterling silver neck is with this saxophone. It is in excellent condition and has no signs of past pull down or repair. The body tube, bow and bell are all in beautiful original condition. There is some history of past dent work around the bow area. The work was done professionally and is hard to spot unless you are looking carefully. It bow cap is in perfect condition and has never been pushed in. All of the original key guards are intact and in outstanding condition. There has been just one re-solder on one of the key guard feet to the low Eb key.
The sound of this horn is incredibly rich and colorful. It features an impressive and flexible dynamic range that can go  from smokey soft subtone to a bright and piercing full tone. The upper register is incredibly open and ultra responsive. This is a real players horn with a beautiful unique tone. Tenor ships out in perfect playing condition in the original case.
