Among the most desirable vintage saxophones of all, are the Conn gold plated transitional tenors with art deco style engraving. I have only seen a handful of these ever, and they all sold for high prices. They were all excellent players as well. This one has a huge voice like I always expect on a Conn of this serial. It has older pads and will need an overhaul soon. If you want that rarity factor with the original gold plate, that’s the reason to get this one. The lacquered or silver ones from the same period also play wonderfully, so you can definitely get the same kind of tone for less money. But if you want to be in the exclusive club of folks who own a gold art deco Conn transitional tenor, then this is your ticket.
