HELP, I Want One!

This is a beautiful original gold plated vintage C.G. Conn New Wonder – Chu Berry tenor sax, serial number 169656. With a gorgeous look and a world class sound this tenor is going to be hard to pass up. It was overhauled in 2016 by a pro shop on the West Coast and is playing like a real dream. The tenor features all new leather pads with seamless metal resonators.  As well as new corks, felts and a fresh key regulation. Instrument also ships in original wood Conn case. 
 
The tenor is sporting a lovey burnished gold and satin gold finish.  The finish looks great from top to bottom.  Its body is physically in very nice original condition showing no history of serious dent work.  The bow, bow cap, body tube and bell all look fantastic. There have been a few key post re-solders to this horn (see pictures 9 and 10) The tenor also includes the original neck in good condition.  The neck has not been pulled down.
 
These vintage Conn's are great free blowing tenors and have a lot of character to the way they play. This one is no exception. It has a lush warm sound which is further enriched by the gold plated body. It is always a treat to get in such a lovely vintage tenor.  Don't miss out on this gold plated gem. In order to keep the cost at a nice premium we are selling this saxophone in as is condition without additing any aditional work into it. It was last set-up by Saxquest in 2017 and is still in fantastic playing condition.
