Neck for H-Couf Superba I Bari?

Hi - I posted on the Parts Wanted forum, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to also post in the H-Couf/Keilwerth forum...

I have a H Couf Superba I bari that got off eBay a couple of years ago. It didn't have the original neck, but the seller included a Yamaha (I think) neck. I'm having a few intonation issues that I think could be partially solved if I were to get an original neck, in addition to getting some leaks fixed.

Anyone know where I could get a Couf neck? I've been checking eBay, but I'm not sure where else to look. Are there other models that would be the right fit? Finally, does anyone have the measurements?

Thanks in advance for your help

It took me years to get a baritone sax neck, so I wish you the best of luck.

If I were in your shoes, I might search for a neck that was made somewhere "with Germany engineering" which might indicate that it was a Keilwerth copy.

A few measurements of a genuine Keilwerth would give you some basis for hoping it might work.

Some nearby school or a store might have one you could measure.

Perhaps someone here could provide the measurements of a proper Couf neck.

Thanks. I'm taking the horn in tomorrow to my tech, so hopefully he also has some options for me or maybe he can modify the current neck to the original specifications
