Yes, I totally agree. I felt like stealing candy from a baby and I told the seller but she insisted and even reimbursed me for the gas for driving 120 miles to look at the horn. She had a few "bargain hunters" come looking at it who were trying to barter and she showed them the door because she felt insulted.Thank you for that, Saxaholic.
The first two replies...are 'outliers'. Steals, really. Do not get the idea that those are average market values.
Thanks. I'm not looking for myself, just evaluating a horn for a friend. I got to play it, great saxophone but my SML had more of everything.Found an absolutely perfect 6m from the mid 30s a few months ago for seven with case so you never know what your gonna find if you know what your looking at.
I'll tell you this though, the 6m is the best horn i've ever played in my entire life
If it is as described, I think that is a decent price. That one is actually a 1946 based on the serial number. I think a lot of people look at the Conn brass instrument serial number list rather than the woodwind list and then come up with an earlier date. I picked up a similar condition 1939 Conn 6m that was advertised as a 1936 a few months ago. I paid more than that and am happy with it.Well, $1200 is what he's asking. Kind of hard to tell a whole lot about it from the photos.
