Conn 6M Ladyface

In remarkably good condition, with original lacquer. This is one of the first 6M horns without the rolled tone holes. It was mid 1948 according to the Conn serial number list on the saxpics website. It's a terrific horn to play, very free blowing! Lots of power and a full sound.Condition : Overhauled by previous owner in 2015, and an additional full maintenance check in December 2021. The sax is in great playing condition! No damage or dents, just tiny dings on bottom bow section. Of course it has its share of lacquer wear from normal use, but its still a good looking horn. The Ladyface engraving is very nice. It has a non-original neck from a later model 6M, without microtuner and with nickel plated octave key. No damage or pull down on the neck. All original amber rollers are in great condition, and all locking screws are present (some were replaced by modern ones). The pads are all in good condition and were threatened with pad oil.Warranty : as-is condition : no warranty.Level : professional.Body : Lacquer : original lacquer.Condition : good, with normal wear and tear.Visual : a couple of small dings, scratches and usual lacquer wear.Repairs : none.Engraving : well visible Ladyface engraving.Keywork : Lacquered, with usual lacquer wear.Condition : very good, with normal wear and tear.Pads : very good condition.Neck : Lacquered, with nickel plated octave key.
