King Super 20 Tenor 1948
This is a vintage King Super 20 tenor saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 298344. The saxophone was manufactured in 1948 and features the classic Super 20 pearl inlays on the side keys as well as G#, alternate F# and palm keys. This tenor also shows off original lacquer finish and is with the original sterling silver double socket neck. These saxophones are known for being very powerful and free blowing players showcasing a brilliant color. This one came in to our store having not been serviced in some time so it is currently in line in our shop awaiting a complete mechanical restoration. 
 
The body of the sax is in solid condition while showing history of plenty of past play time and some past repair. All of the original key work and pearl rollers are with the saxophone. The low C, Eb and bell key guards are all in great shape and have never been repaired. There is history of repair to the alt F# key guard as well as to the palm D post system. The bow of the saxophone shows some history of some smaller dings being taken out ( some still remain at the time of photos) but the bow cap itself is in excellent shape and has never been pushed in. The original neck with double socket is with this saxophone. This neck is in very good condition overall but was very slightly pulled down at some point in the past. 
 
This tenor is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a very thorough overhaul. The overhaul will include a complete dissemble and cleaning followed by precise key fitting and regulation. Once complete the saxophone will be set up and in perfect playing condition with all new Valentino premium pro pads, metal domed resonators as well as all new corks and felts. While the sax is in our shop we will also address the small dings and dimples around the bow as well as take care of any needed adjustment to the neck.
 
This saxophone ships out in perfect playing condition with the original King wood hard case. 
 
The body is physically in great shape showing a health amount of cosmetic play wear.
