Insipid: If that price is okay with you (meaning, you can afford toys) then by all means. I wouldn't pay that kind of money for that piece, but maybe you'll like it. But in the end, if you DON'T like it, then how will you feel about that $200.00? DAVE

In my experience there is a lot of variability in the finishing of the facing, chamber and baffle on soloist and Selmer in general, they need to be tried first. If you are considering sending it to Phil-tone, give him a call first. I believe he just released his own version of a short shank which might be a better option once you consider the total cost of buying and refacing a vintage piece.

Depends on what it costs you to turn it into a good mouthpiece. These are OK if it's what you like, but once it gets altered, then it's no longer original.

I wouldn't buy that unless I specifically wanted a Soloist C* and I knew that was a good one from a trusted seller.
