HELP, I Want One!

1950 Super 20 w/ Pearls– Fire Player!
This is a very sweet H.N. White King Super 20 tenor saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 315659. The tenor is an early series II model manufactured in 1950.  These models showcased pearl inlays on the side keys, palm keys, G# and left hand octave key touch. They also included sunburst engraving on the low B and Bb keys in addition to the King floral engraving on the bell area. The Super 20 is very known for its flashy sterling silver double socket neck with under slung octave key. This particular Super 20 is in great shape showing some standard history of past play time by the previous owner. It was also professionally overhauled not too long ago in another shop and is quite the impressive player. 
The body of this saxophone is in excellent physical condition from top to bottom. Looking over it very closely it does not show any history of past re-solders. All of the original key work, posts and guards are present and in great shape. The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in excellent physical condition. There are just a few very small dings along the lower bow that are hard to see, but nothing too serious. This saxophone does include the original double socket neck in sterling silver. The neck is in great shape and has never been pulled down. At this point all of the gold lacquer over spray is gone and it is completely down to the sterling. The neck also shows the matching serial number stamp. 
This tenor is easily one of the most powerful and free blowing horns we have on our sales floor at the moment. It takes the air in quick and plays with a exceptionally huge sonic character. This tenor was recently overhauled in another shop on leather pads, metal rivet resonators and natural cork. It displays a crisp feel under the fingers allowing for a positive feel and snappy response regarding movement. This saxophone ships out with a very nice after market countered hard case. To sweeten the deal it also has the original certificate from King. This is an item we rarely see. Don't miss out on this sweet player.
