The official M Naked Lady models were advertised to the public in 1935, the previous model being the New Wonder Two (known for its distinct G# nail file lever). This horn is one of the rare ones caught on the production line between these two phases and shows the combined trait/s of both models. It has all the 6M attributes (same-sided bell keys, the curved high E palm key, the silver-plated adjustable thumb hook, the removal of the forked Eb resonance key, the improved G# cluster, the underslung microtuner neck, and, most importantly, the Naked Lady engraving) but retains the New Wonder Two the serial number stamp layout. This horn does not have the 6M stamp in the serial number, very unusual given the year it was made.This alto has been well looked after and is in good condition. The lacquer looks lovely with that deep golden tint it has acquired with age. All the original pearl pinky rollers are there without any chips to them. It has all of its original Conn pivot lock-screws (quite a rarity in itself) along with its original hard case.
This alto saxophone has a served me well what a powerful player! It has had new pads installed but will need servicing/regulating after transit to be in playing condition so please bear this in mind. The case is good and strong as ever with no splits in the wood and the all latches functioning. Berkeley cases, mouthpieces, and many vintage U.
