Maybe the same nail file was used to delaq the horn that was used before he painted his nails blue?

btw G, why are you looking at an alto? I thought tenor was all that mattered? ;)

At least it's not a MkVI. They obviously did this because it was too 'shiny'.

Nothing a good buffing and relacquering (or re-plating) couldn't solve.

Perhaps a younger person that didn't actually pay for the horn?

Why? I try to keep up on the latest technology of delacquering. This is a fine example of What Not to Do - not that I advocate delacquering an intact horn.

You're right about "Tenor - It's all that matters."

What would possess somebody to do this? I just don't get it....[rolleyes]
Obviously the tone was too bright and the owner wanted to make it more warm and spread? Less focused? :TGNCHK:

Or, could it have been the result of a nasty divorce proceeding? :whistle:
