Urgently........

This is an older Borgani made in the late ’70 beginning of the ’80 . Looks in a particularly good state but these were horns made BEFORE Borgani acquired the cachet that this company has now and worth in my opinion not more than 1000€ if in perfect working order

They tend to be difficult to sell and similar ones looking less good as yours have been struggling at 600€ for months and months. The mechanics are very much less sophisticated as the new ones are.

Thanks a lot Milandro

Problem is that I don't have neck for him, so I need one for this model.

Milandro can you tell me something about tone quality of this model and intonation?

They are good and very honest saxophones but not to be compared to the modern Borgani!!

If you don’t have a neck for this saxophone the new Borgani necks shouldn’t be too different from these and fit or could be adapted to fit but it will cost you and a lot.

I have played a few of these (also owned a curved soprano of the same generation) and they are nice saxophones but without a neck the value would drop considerably and be in the 350€ region even if everything else is perfect! I personally wouldn’t bother to buy this horn without a neck.
