This tenor is the exact opposite of a collector's piece.  Much of the finish is worn and we've addressed a few physical issues.  The neck has had a pull-down, there are a few resolders, and we removed a couple of dents from the bottom bow and bell.  The pads look on the older side and it currently has plastic resonators.  Metal resonators would have been original for this vintage, but I really enjoy the way it plays with the plastics. 

This horn is currently in fair-to-poor playing condition.  It doesn't feel great, but we spent some time to get it playing well enough to record a bit.  The core feels very dense and stable.  It seems to have a very clean/clear articulation and a nice bit of punch.  The sound feels flexible enough that it could be used in a variety of contexts.  With metal resonators, it could be a really screamin' "Brecker-ish" 5-digit.  It's really remarkable that it sounds so good given the playing condition. 

Though we are selling this "as is," we would ultimately recommend having this tenor overhauled.  If you would prefer for us to do the work, just send us a message and we'll let you know the additional cost and waiting time.  All other questions are welcome, as well!

I would like to clarify that this horn has been relacquered.  After a couple of questions about the originality of the horn, I realized I hadn't explicitly stated that it was a relacquer in the original description.  So, for those who have bid, are planning on bidding, or are generally interested in this tenor: it has definitely been relacquered.  Thanks!
