This is a 1945 vintage, first series King Super 20 alto sax, serial number 276441. This horn came out in the first year of the Super 20, and has all of the features of the very first horns in this run.

 

This alto was relacquered long ago as seen in the pictures, but the engraving doesn't look bad and still shows well defined detail for the most part. All of the floral engraving on the bell still looks nice. This model features sunburst engraving on all of the low bottom bow and bell key cups, “pearl side keys” on nearly all the touch points, a triple strap neckstrap ring, and the first version of the G# cluster for the Super 20. It still has all of its original keyguards, as well as the original neck. The neck is a sterling silver neck with underslung octave key, and double socket receiver.

 

As it sits, this horn could use some work. There are a number of minor dings and dimples in the body, including behind the thumb rest, but no serious past trauma. The neck has a slight pull-down and is missing the neck screw. Pads are old, and will need to be replaced. With our repair shop backed up for months, we've decided to let this one go as-is for a bargain price. If you have a local shop you love who can do the work, this is your opportunity to a clean Super 20 for a steal. If you'd like us to do the work, you can select the option above, and we'll restore it properly. The restoration price would include full disassembly and cleaning, all dent work, new pads and material throughout, and pro regulation. We'd get it back in perfect playing shape (please allow 8 weeks for restoration).
