Vintage saxophone in very good condition with an ornately engraved bell, bow and bell keys!

 

Description

This King Super 20 tenor saxophone is in very good condition with around 75-80% of a re-lacquer and medium player wear across the horn. It has just come back from being cleaned and adjusted so it plays very well. The pads are older but they are all still in good shape. There are some minor dents through the back of the body down into the bow as well as some minor dents in the bell.  The bell does have a very slight wave in the bell edge from bell lip pull down removal. There is one key guard that is missing and multiple replacement screws for key guards and the leg guard. Please see the photos for more details. The serial number is “382474” making this a 1962-1963 vintage tenor saxophone. The engraving on the bell reads “King Super 20 The H.N. White Co. Cleveland Ohio” and is a little difficult to read due to the old re-lacquer job. 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 minor pull down.  It looks as though the octave key has been repaired. Please see pictures for details. It comes in a good used SKB replacement case.  No mouthpiece is included. This saxophone has that iconic King sound, super mellow with warm overtones. It plays easily up and down the register with a quick response.
