I’d give myself a set amount of time to find a neck and if nothing shows up, get a Gloger. Or you might find a intact Zephyr bari which would in all likelihood fit and often go fairly inexpensive esp if needing an overhaul....stick to a Gloger neck (the best reproduction necks around... Swapping necks hoping that they would fit or do anything positive is a chance game and the combinations and permutations are such that the lottery (involving money) odds don’t seem too bad compared to this.
Mind if I ask why?i just want to know what size a 1980 super 20 series 6 neck is.
King I believe only made Zephyr and S20's. The S20 is not exactly a dressed up Zeph because the bellpiece has same-side bellkeys, while the Zephs maintained split-bell keys throughout its life. Also, the S20 low C# hole is differently placed than the Zephs. So right there we know both bellpiece and bow are different between the two - thus it is arguable to call them the same design, really.If it has the octave key on it like posted above, it does complicate things. The 'Super 20' baritone was simply a King baritone with cosmetic touches to resemble iconic Super 20 features. Notice the handmade brass wire bell key guard made to resemble the stamped one on the other saxes. The point is, the neck was the regular King baritone neck except some were in silver. I'd say a silver Super 20 baritone neck would make hens' teeth seem plentiful but you might be able to find a brass one from the other bari.
Saxesarecool - a word of advice: you seem to have a penchant for buying up old horns, cheap...some of which are incomplete, others of which are very old and absent of the full contingent of typical keywork.i just want to know what size a 1980 super 20 series 6 neck is.
i bought the instrument and it doesnt have a neck. #1Mind if I ask why?
1) Is it because you have such a horn and it's missing a neck?
2) Is it because you're contemplating purchasing a horn that doesn't have a neck, or comes with a mismatched neck?
3) Is it because you have such a horn with its original neck and you want to experiment with others?
4) Or is it some other reason?
If it's one, good luck. You'll have a hard time finding a matching neck for a bari of this vintage, and crafting one will be expensive. If it's two, DON'T BUY IT. If it's three, don't waste your time. If it's four... do tell.
Yeah... well... unfortunately, you're going to have to learn the hard way. Seek out the neck makers/specialist for the numbers you seek. They often keep records of sizes of previously fabricated necks they've matched for clients in the past, and aren't always members of the community here.i bought the instrument and it doesnt have a neck. #1
