If you had the option to buy a used Bundy, a used Conn 20M or a new prelude, what would you get. It would be my first sax...

Exactly, those are the only options right now in Costa Rica where I live, not even the Yamahas are available right now at the stores, sold out. Nothing for the next three - four months. And I want to start playing sooner.
The options are a new cheap Chinese horn, the used Bundy, the used Conn 20M and a new Prelude.
I heard that the Selmer Preludes are made in China, so maybe it's the same thing as the chinese horns but over priced because of the brand...
I'm not so worried about the brand, actually I don't really know about brands but when you buy a good thing (in any area, not only instruments) It helps you, its more friendly, sound better, I play the guitar and my guitar is a very good one and It's a pleasure to play it, even it's a old and ugly one...
So back to my options thats what my budget allows me for the moment, taking in cosideration that I'm an absolute beginner, because in a store I found a Yamaha 62 for almos 3000, and I can't go for that one, not now...
So I would apreciate your coments about this options.
Thanks y'all

Thanks everybody and thanks a lot JayeSF, thats the help I needed from you guys...
My budget is limited for the moment, I would say I can spend a maximum of $700 including the shipping.
Other thing about the used saxes is that I'm such a beginner that I wouldn't know how to evaluate a used sax, if it is in a good condition or if it is completely messed up. A friend of mine is coming with me to check them out on tuesday (he is a very young and good sax player) so I hope he knows.
Do you have something that can work for me JayeSF ?
Around how much can a overhaul cost for the bundy?
