I just received it two days ago. All original except it appears there has been some relacquering done. The original owner who acquired it from his father (who played it since it was brand new) in 1960, says it had to be done before then because he hadn't done it, and in fact hadn't played it much in the past 50 some years. It's at the tech who will have it for about a month due to his tight summer schedule. On first inspection the snap-on resonator/pad system is intact and the norton springs are all good. I'm excited!

Well the only way I can wait that long is I have my Big B alto and tenor. But it will be great to hear it then. It sounded brighter than the others before any work is started.

Not only can he talk, he can play...however he is hard on mouthpieces with most of them having toothmark issues.

Muahahahahahahaha.... :twisted:

For the younger crowd that may not be getting the reference, Wilber, is the human. The horse, Mr. Ed, could talk, do math, and play musical instruments. People were always astonished that a horse could do those things -- much like they are when they realize I can too. :shock:
