Not profitable, big pain in the butt to do right, lots of stress added for a one man business like me. Still will be doing my horns and one or two very close friends... especially now that I have convinced a close friend to ditch that borgani and get a buescher :twisted:Why last?
Thanks man!Very nice!
Thanks Mark, it's lacquered keeping in mind the preservation of the instrument, not trying to hide the marks left by use. This is what I had in mind you know... I on't think that you can tell by pictures, but in person it looks like gold plated.You can sort of see it in pic 26 in the very fine engraving fill, but I swear if you hadn't said it was a relacq I'd never have known. VERY nice!!!
I was about removing the lacquer on the pearls when the owner (one owner, original owner purchased this horn in 1965 at the local selmer sales representative) said "Cool, like when it was new, lacquer over the finger pearls"...Oh yeah, and the lacquer on 'em. :bluewink:
