Shouldn't that be Jimmy Dorsey? Tommy Dorsey played the trombone.
I can't remember what makes the so-called "Dorsey" model differ from the last iterations of the Super;Yep. definitely the wrong neck. And of course, it's Jimmy Dorsey. But I think this one is a Super with a later neck.
Yeah, man .. I already own one too, so to blazes with it, goll durnit !!It's a Radio Improved. Nothing more, nothing less. The Dorsey models had the B/A style key guards and I believe some had a more built up Bb key on the LH pinky spat. I'm pretty sure those are the only differences between them and a "regular" SSS saxophone. This one is clearly a RI (look at the stamp on the bell) with a VI neck. Might be a nice playing horn, but I already like mine just fine.
Mike, it's not a Dorsey model! It's a bone stock RI with a VI neck. Again.....potentially could be a great player, but it's really nothing special. See MDWade's post (#12) for more clarification!Well, the listing was posted here. Say goodbye to a good deal on a Jimmy Dorsey model Selmer!
