Silver Lacquer 12M
Here is a lovely vintage C.G. Conn 12M Naked Lady baritone sax in original silver plate, with a serial number of 340719. This saxophone is a fantastic player and features key work going down to low Bb up to palm F. It even features a front F mechanism for useful alternate fingerings. This saxophone is dated to 1951 so there are no remnants of the transition from the 'Chu Berry' model of the 1930s. The sonic character of this saxophone is best described as robust and warm while remaining free-blowing and responsive. Clarity and projection come hand in hand with these Conn 12M's. 
The plating on this horn is original with a satin silver finish across the body and only on the bell engraving, which is still crisp as the day it was etched, you will find the beautiful gloss finish to back the logo and portrait. Physically this saxophone has seen a fair amount of use and shows history of repair, some joint and post re-solders are evident as well as one patch near the spit valve. The ease of play on this horn isn't affected by these repairs.
If you are looking to get a sweet playing Conn bari and do not mind a little existing character this sax is an ideal choice. This baritone was overhauled in another shop just a few years ago. Its current set of leather pads and brown nylon resonators are in very good condition. For it to be considered in perfect playing condition it could use a general pc/set-up first. Due to the fact it is currently playing nicely we are not going to be putting any set-up work on it. We will play test the saxophone before shipping as well as giving it a once over on the bench.
The last owner of the sax put a set of cork risers on the keys. These have a nice feel to them especially if you have longer fingers. If you would like these removed please leave us a message in the notes field during check out.  This horn ships out in a used Protec baritone case. Please send us a product message if you have any questions or feel free to contact us direct at zac@saxquest.com.
