Beautiful sound just needs a new neck cork

1 in stock


Additional Information: This is a great vintage tenor saxophone! It does currently play and has a beautiful sound however it needs a neck cork. We simply wrapped painter’s tape around to create a “cork” to test play the horn. The top left hand palm key guide is missing half of its guide, not included. The key guard on the bottom bow is missing and not included as is one of the feet for that key guard. The foot is missing and not included. One of the screws for the leg guard is missing and not included. There is a light dent at the leg guard on the bottom foot. You can feel some evidence of dent and/or pull-down removal in the neck. One of the body posts is bent slightly at the tip where the pivot screw enters. It is currently holding in place however we wanted to mention this. Apart from needing to replace the neck cork the rest of the horn is functioning properly as it is. After you add a cork to the neck this should be a killer sounding King tenor saxophone!
