Conn "Shooting Stars" model, #L56308 (1968)
Ok folks, it's time to start calling this former student model a vintage sax, because it is finally being recognized as one. And it's cheap at that (I mean inexpensive). Made with great metal, a heavy horn, a horn with some weight; it plays with a great sound. It's what the 6M became in the late 1960's. Made in the good old USA, Elkhart, Indiana; former capital of the instrument manufacturing business; before Conn headed south. This one came to us with essentially New Pads(!). It's been serviced and plays great. Lacquer is in good condition as well, although neck (with no pull down) is spotty. Fair price.
