This C.G. Conn 6M VIII Alto Saxophone with Naked Lady Engraving 1940’s Serial #307099 is in fantastic condition with 90-95% of the original lacquer and a beautiful full Naked Lady portrait engraving. It has just come from the shop where it was cleaned, adjusted and completely re padded, so it plays wonderfully. There’s a small dent in the bow and a tiny one on the bell, but otherwise this horn is in great shape. Please see the photos for more details. The serial number is 307099 making this a 1942-1943 vintage horn. On the back of the body is engraved “6M VIII Pat APP’D For A 307099 L”. The “L” denotes this horn is in low pitch. Until the mid-1940s Conn made horns in both high and low pitch. The engraving is a gorgeous Naked Lady engraving with the full bust and the words “Made By C.C. Conn LTD Elkhart, IND. U.S.A.” featured beside it. The C.G. Conn “Naked Lady” horns are some of the most iconic saxophones out there. They have an unbelievable sound and are the favorites of professionals and students alike. This horn also comes with the original micro tuner, sleeve style/double socket neck that’s in great shape with no evidence of a pull down. The lacquer wear is a little heavier on the neck than on the horn. It comes in a new case. A mouthpiece is not included. This alto saxophone has that awesome 6M sound; great intonation with a warm, round tone.
