A close friend who was a college band director is retired and 81. He wants to sell his SBA tenor that he got new in 1953. Original lacquer and case. I have a analog photo and it looks decent but a bit worn over the years. I have no idea of the value so if anyone is up on these, let me know. He is located in Jacksonville Florida.

A 50s SBA has to be worth 8 to 10 k all day..
I sold one 3 years ago for $ 8, 000

In the NL a good one would be easily €7,500 to a very maximum of 10,000. Private sales may not achieve the same level achieved by a shop.

I think it would sell around $10K based on everything I've seen over the last few years. I paid $10K for my 1952 SBA and I've been offered significantly more unsolicited a few times since I've bought it.
