A pre-WWII Conn 10M "Naked Lady" tenor saxophone, made in Elkhart, Ind. This is a very solidly built tenor showing no evidence of past structural repair no solders, etc., and it features the famous Rolled Tone Holes (RTH)! The "Naked Lady" or "Lady Face" in the pentagon frame is clear and crisp in real.
I apologize for my poor quality photos of the bell engraving, which may give the false impression that it has been obscured or otherwise faded as it has not. The sax was recently overhauled - cleaned, repadded, all felts, corks and springs checked carefully and replaced where needed, and oiled. The tone is phenomenal and intonation spot on!It plays from top to bottom (which I can whisper to nicely) with consistent action. This is a great tenor. Many a Selmer SBA and Mark VI player has switched to the great 10M "Naked Lady" RTH model after playing one and hearing that "one of a kind sound" that no sax ever made can produce.
Many of the top living players have played one or play one as their main horn. Some of the greatest jazz tenor sax legends played one, ie. It comes with it's original case, which is in fair condition and fully functional - latches and all.The item "1940 Conn 10M Naked Lady Tenor Saxophone ROLLED TONE HOLES!
