I just bought a horn off ebay. It says it's a martin handcraft stencil harmony with a serial # of 1915 lp. I haven't played in a few years and I miss playing so I bought this one because I liked it and it looks like something that wont take much work and time. I'm only playing for my own pleasure at home. Can someone take a look and tell me what they think of this horn?

i tried to include the link from ebay, if it doesnt work then i have pics i can email:if you copy & paste, it will take you the listing.

Nice looking horn. I've got a Handcraft from this era - it has a great sound and plays well with a fairly open Vanduren mpc. The keywork is good too once adjusted properly. The palm keys were a bit low for my liking - but they were easy to get used to (I'm too lazy to get risers I guess)

Get it adjusted by a tech once you receive it. Otherwise it may not be playing at it's best and you may be (unneccisarily) dissapointed.

"Ready to play" - yeah, I've heard that before...
