Near-mint condition (very late-run "VIII") 1945 C. Standard, artist model, Naked Lady, lady face, lady on the bell, pentagon etc.
The Conn 6M has always been regarded as one of the best saxophones ever made. The early 6Ms with the Conn (RTH) Rolled Tone Holes, plus the limited edition stamped "VIII" (on both body & neck), plus the rare silver-plating with gold-washed inner bell is known to be the "best of the best", and most desirable edition of the 6M. The silver plating (98%+) is in mint condition. The original key plating is also really clean and uncorroded. Here's hardly any noticeable silver rubbing-off wear on this one!
As you can see the prominent Naked Lady engraving is sharp and clean. Minor scratches/dings that are common for this vintage (see photos). Original Conn key pearls and the original Conn pearl rollers! Nice (far better than most) condition for its 75 years of age, and the unmistakable Conn pinky table keys are in good alignment - unlike a lot of other 6Ms.Double-socketed neck; no evidence of pull-down; some dings (see photos); fully operational Conn micro-tuner adjuster; the 6M sax has a completely unique & sleek neck design with the hidden underslung octave key. Both the sax body AND the neck are stamped "VIII" on this one... It is crucial to have both to be an authentic limited edition. Rolled tone holes - a unique feature and they are much easier on the key pads. Good leather pads with Conn appropriate metal resonators. Silver-plated Conn saxophones are valued significantly higher, and are known to resonate & sound superior. Plays very well, in tune, with that awesome resonant Conn sound. Charlie Parker (aka "Bird") played a Conn 6M...
Silver plated professional vintage saxophones - especially ones this clean - really stand out from the crowd, both visually and sonically. You'll be hard pressed to find another all-original silver-plated Conn 6M VIII that is this clean! On't miss this stunningly beautiful and unmodified original Conn 6M VIII silver-plated Naked Lady.
Vintage saxophones this special don't come along every day, make an offer.. Listen to it in action here. Perfect time to play a killer sax! Includes a non-original case (not pictured) and it will be packed well.
