That has to be the absolute worst, most amateur factory engraving I have ever seen! If it weren't for the body/keywork being mostly correct, I'd say it was a fake.

I can imagine the people at the factory... "Hey Bob, do you still remember how to make a Super 20?" "Well, kinda... Hey Fred, how do we make a Super 20??" "Not sure... I think I have a picture here somewhere..."
So they started with a 613 body and bolted on S20-like keywork. It could be a great horn, but I doubt it.

Jason said it all.......I would keep my money in the pocket and ambush a better one, at least...... I am hoping to do just that some day soon! Way too expensive!

late super 20

That may be the highest serial number I have ever seen on a Super 20.

probably made the last day they were in business, just before they went home for the last time. :)

Should be one of those outsourced bodies with the drawn toneholes. Note the high-F#.

.......but wait! Did any of them actually ever have the high-F# key?

Could it be a Super 21 and someone tried to make it look like a Super 20? What a con job!

On the contrary........ the Super 21 is extremely rare looks completely different from the poor example which started all this and .....it it very valuable!
