Description

This C.G. Conn 6M VIII alto saxophone with Naked Lady engraving has just come back from the shop where it was completely overhauled, re-padded and re-lacquered with our custom vintage lacquer. The custom vintage color is hand mixed, and it has that dark honey brown color without being like a King gold or a Yamaha clear. This saxophone is absolutely gorgeous, in mint condition with all original parts. The engraving was hand buffed before the re-lacquer to keep the engraving as sharp as possible. The engraving on the bell reads “Made By C.G. Conn LTD. Elkhart-Ind. U.S.A.” with the full bust Naked Lady portrait.  On the back of the saxophone near the serial number is engraved “6M VIII PAT.APP’D FOR A 279992 L”. The neck also has “VIII” engraved on it. The serial number is 279992 making this a vintage 1937-1938 horn. This model has rolled tone holes, a sleeve style neck, under slung octave mechanism, and a tunable neck sleeve. It comes in a new replacement gator body pack case. No mouthpiece is included. This saxophone looks and plays beautifully!
