This King Super 20 tenor saxophone is in beautiful condition with around 80-85% of its lacquer remaining with speckled lacquer wear throughout the horn with light scratching from typical player wear on the leg side. There is light evidence of dent removal on the bow on the leg side. There is a very minor ding just up from the serial number on the back of the body. Please see the photos for more details. The serial number is “367243” making this a 1959 vintage tenor saxophone. The engraving on the bell reads “King Super 20 The H.N. White Co. Cleveland Ohio.” There are incredibly ornate leaves and flowers engraved around the words and down the bell. The bell keys are engraved as well. This tenor saxophone comes with the original sterling silver sleeve/double socket neck with the underslung octave mechanism. The neck is in good condition and there is evidence of a very minor pull-down. It comes in a good used SKB replacement case. No mouthpiece is included.
