HELP, I Want One!

This is a vintage C.G. Conn 6M “Naked  Lady” alto saxophone, serial number 316772. If you are looking to get into a vintage Conn with rolled tone holes for a low price this would be a great way to do it. This particular alto is not the prettiest but it still has a ton of potential. Right now it is playing down to a low Bb through some leaks on a set of older pads. The Conn 6M is known for is big and fat free blowing sound and strong projection. This sax in particular also has a nice warm color to the way it plays. 
 
The body of the saxophone is in good shape show a history of minor dent repair and solder work. Some smaller dings still remain. All of the key guards are intact on this saxophone as is the pearl rollers and trill G# key. The original double socket neck with micro tuner is also in good condition. Ultimately the saxophone will need to be completely re-padded before it is going to be ready for serious playing. At this time we are offering it in as is condition due to our shop schedule and to keep the final price down.
