Cash,
I have a super rare Lakey tenor here, if you're interested. Its the vintage Symphony model with a very unique design for the Lakeys.
Its a powerful player with body!...also unique for Lakeys. :)
Does it have a single stripe without the crosshatch? I go back to the early '80s with pieces straight from Claude - and all those had the crosshatch. In what era was the Symphony produced?

The Symphony models are late 60's, Ive been told.
It has a thin cross-hatch section at the bottom. It was designed for the symphony players , so its nicely in tune and has more body to the sound than the later Lakeys. Its also got a dip in the baffle.
Ive got matching tenor and alto Symphony models here. Nice pieces.
Thanks for the info.
