Anyone have pics of a Morgan Vintage that you can post or link to?

Last week I picked up an LA Sax/Morgan alto mpc from Junkdude.com, and was mildly surprised that it appears to be simply a BARI Esprit that Ralph (or one of his elves) reworked (reshaping the beak) and hand-finished. I have an Esprit for comparsion purposes.

I'm just curious if the newer Morgan Vintage mpc line is just a continuation of this. So if anyone has any pics for comparison purposes...thanks!

Here are some pics of the Esprit and the LA Sax by Morgan:

I have one of ralph's vintage and protone mouthpieces
and it looks just like these mouthpieces.
BARI and Ralph probably get their blanks from the same place.

I agree. I have both and can tell little difference. Even the tip is the same opening. The Morgan is slightly better probably because of more care. The BARI wins for school use due to the price being about one third.
