The early pre-WWII 6Ms with the Conn Rolled Tone Holes, plus the limited edition stamped "VIII" (on both the body & neck) is known to be the "best of the best", and most desirable edition of the 6M. The golden-honey finish looks to me like it was likely redone several decades ago (common practice) and is in good condition, plus normal wear...It has very nice vintage patina going on. As you can see the prominent Naked Lady engraving is quite visible and a beauty. Minor scratches/dents/dings that are common for this vintage (see photos). The rollers appear to also be pearl.
Nice, better than most condition (for its over 80 years of age), and the incomparably-distinct Conn pinky table keys are in perfect alignment - unlike a lot of other 6Ms. Double-socketed neck; no evidence of pull-down; some dings (see photos); fully smoothly operational Conn micro-tuner adjuster; the 6M sax has a completely unique & sleek neck design with the hidden underslung octave key. Both the sax body and neck are stamped "VIII". This is a very desirable, pre-war early-run VIII with serial #284xxx 1938. Rolled tone holes - a unique feature and they are much easier on the key pads.
The new pads are upgraded with waffled-metal star resonators (for better projection) also referred to as "Hollywood resonators". This is definitely a "player's horn" with a nice vintage patina.It plays very well, in tune, with that awesome resonant Conn sound! Charlie Parker (aka "Bird") played a Conn 6M... Don't miss this beautiful, unmodified, player's horn Conn 6M VIII Naked Lady. Vintage saxophones this special don't come along every day, make an offer.. Perfect time to play a killer sax! As with any vintage instrument adjustments are to be expected. Includes a case and it will be packed well.
