This C.G. Conn 12M Baritone Saxophone Serial #M235738 is in absolutely fantastic condition with 80% of the original lacquer and light speckle wear across the horn. There is one spot of lacquer wear on the bell and a few tiny dents in the bow. There is also, a re-soldered brace on the bow and a little heavier lacquer wear on the neck. Please see the photos for more details. Overall the horn is in excellent shape. The serial number can be found on the back of the body and reads M235738 with the words “Pat Dec 8, 1914, 1119954 B” engraved above it and the letter “L” engraved below it. This horn is a 1929 vintage horn made with a low pitch. Until 1940 Conn made horns in both high and low pitch. It has the trademark nail file G# and rolled tone holes. The engraving on the bell is incredibly unique and absolutely gorgeous. Engraved is a mountain scene with a cabin and a river, which is surrounded by scrolling leaves and flowers all the way down the bell. The words “Made by C.G. Conn Ltd Elkhart, IND U.S.A.” are featured prominently below the engraving. This horn comes with the original neck in great condition with no pull down. This baritone saxophone comes in a new case. No mouthpiece is included. This Saxophone really cranks, it has that classic Conn big, warm sound and plays wonderfully in the lower register. C.G. Conn 12M baritones were the favorite horns of players such as Gerry Mulligan and Harry Carney.
