Currently Being Overhauled in the Saxquest Repair Shop

This is a sweet 1948 vintage King Super 20 tenor sax, serial number 298095. This horn was made in that small 1-2 year window when King updated the table keys from the first generation of Super 20s (introduced in 1945), but it still has the sunburst engraving on all the lower body/body key cups, which was dropped shortly after.

 

This original lacquer Super 20 shows decent lacquer wear as you'd expect for its age. We got it in, took some photos, and sent it immediately over to our repair shop for an overhaul. It will be completed in the next couple weeks, and we'll get some fresh photos and a video clip showing off what it can do when properly restored. Physically, the sax currently has a couple bent keyguards, but overall is very straight. We'll straighten the guards during our repad, as well as replace all pads and material. The sax does have its original sterling silver neck with the matching serial number.

 

Stay tuned for some new pictures and a better description once the restoration is completed.
