HELP, I Want One!

Here's something you don't see very often: a true original lacquer CG Conn 10M tenor sax, serial number 276653. The majority of these old horns have been relacquered at some point, but this horn has stayed original and is in solid shape.


Though there's a fair amount lacquer wear to the “back” side of the tube and bell, it is honest playing wear. The famous “naked lady” engraving remains crisp and defined. The sax currently has a few dings and dimples (will be removed during our overhaul), but the horn has never been abused or seen any serious trauma. The original rolled tone holes have never been filed on. The neck is original, with a couple tiny pings, including under the octave key saddle, but it has never been pulled down. All dent work will be done in our repair shop.


This horn had been sitting for ages before it came to us. It is dirty and pads are old, but it will get a complete overhaul in our shop before shipping. We'll take it apart, clean it inside and out, and replace all pads and material, using premium firm leather pads and oversized slightly domed metal resonators. We'll have it back to optimal playing shape, and I can't wait to play it! After all these years, there are some horns I just have a feeling about, and this one has all the makings of a fun vintage 10M, made during Conn's “glory days.”
