I know this has been asked before, but I can't figure out a way to find the info on SOTW. A Conn tenor sax with N156XXX serial number. Approximately what year and where could this one be made?
Thanks!!!

The N letter in the number indicates a manufacture date of 1970. It is most likely a Nogales, AZ made horn, and probably a Director or Shooting Star model, but photos will need to be made available to confirm the model.

Cheers.

Carrington,

Here are some images of a late model 10M model, Elkhart, IN made Tenor (good pro horns):



And photos of a similar era, 16M Director or "Shooting Star", Nogales made student tenor (not so great student horns)
