Conn Naked Lady Tenor

This is a vintage C.G. Conn 10M Naked Lady tenor saxophone, serial number 309168. The 10M was manufactured in the early 1940's and showcases all of the classic Conn features of the period, such as rolled tone holes, trill G#, front F, set screws, naked lady enraging and back door Eb. This one also has the original key pearls and rollers. These tenors are well known for their powerful and punchy sound. They are also considered to be among the most free blowing horns ever made.

 

This was re-silvered at some point in the past. Its “Naked Lady” engraving on the bell area can still be viewed. The current silver finish is clean and quite a striking looking. Its body is in great physical condition regarding the body tube, bow and bell. The original neck is also with the sax and is in outstanding condition. Looking over the sax very carefully it does show some history of past repair. There are a number of solder repairs to key guard feet as well as some of the posts. The work was done extremely well and is hard to spot if you are not looking closely. There was also some repair work performed to the bow. If horns could talk this saxophone would most likely have a very interesting story. You can clearly see an additional inventory number scratched on this saxophone below the factory serial number. If you look really closely you can also see some of this same number scratched faintly on the bell.

 

This tenor came into our shop playing great having recently received a professional overhaul with premium leather pads and metal domed resonators. All of the pads, resonators, corks felts and springs are all still in new condition. We will also go through the horn once more before shipping to ensure it goes out in perfect playing condition.

 

A silver 10M with a prime serial number is much harder to come in comparison to the lacquer models. This tenor ships out in perfect playing condition with a used Hiscox hard case.
