The silver plating (98%+) is in mint condition. The original key plating is really clean with minor silver wear on a few keys. There's hardly any noticeable silver rubbing-off wear on the body of 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 rollers.
Nice (far better than most) condition for its 80+ years of age, and the unmistakable Conn pinky table keys are in decent alignment - unlike a lot of other 6Ms. Double-socketed neck; no evidence of pull-down; some dings; 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 neck are stamped "VIII". Rolled tone holes - a unique feature and they are much easier on the key pads. Good leather pads with Conn appropriate. Silver-plated Conn saxophones are valued significantly higher, are heavier, 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. Vintage pro saxophones this special don't come along every day, make an offer.. Perfect time to play a killer sax! As with any vintage instrument adjustments are to be expected. Includes a case and it will be packed well.
