i am looking for an upgrade alto and have narrowed my choices down to these three, i can afford them all, i was just wondering about different views in comparison, currently i think the SBA is on top, fairly sure actually, but i just wanna know what you all think.

the SBA is great, the lacquer is more intact than on my 275!!! and its only 1800!!


the 6m is great, it is as good as a 26m i recently played, is a good relacquer,

the model 26 i havent played recently, original lacquer, fair quality, quite early

this one is a screamer, the harmonics just play like an extension of the standard register

i bought it :)

they knocked 50 off of it and ive got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
eventually i will try n get some pics,
its a late 1952 model i think,
i aint picked it up yet, when i do ill let you know,
its great!
i got her here on my lap!
the serial is M54964, making it, i believe, the 38th last SBA ever to have been made! it has the original case in amazing condition, even the original neck strap!
i got it valued for insurance purposes, it was valued at £3,895, about $7,000 i think by current exchange rates.
photos on their way soon,

help me think of a name for her!!
