I have a chance to buy a great sounding but not so great looking one. What would be a fair price to pay for it?
Thank you guys,
Sakshama

I sold mine (tenor) for just under 3k, Which was probably a pretty decent deal. It looked nice, but was re-lacquered.

I guess it's a "Super" we're talking about? Pre "radio improved" The "Cigar Cutter" usually refers to the altos with the octave mechanism that looks like a cigar cutter. I don't think the tenors had that, did they?

Anyway, I'd think that $3k is about right these days. A dealer would ask more but would probably have a fresh overhaul done already.

I'm sure I've seen the CG mechanism on a Super tenor. I thinbk it may actually have been Toney Coe's

Selmer refer to a cigar tenor, however someone needs to educate them, I think:

But the lacquered CG tenor here appears to have it:
