This King Super 20 Tener Saxophone with Sterling Silver Neck 1950’s Serial #315929 is in excellent condition with around 80-85% of the original lacquer and light player wear across the instrument. It has just come back from being cleaned, adjusted and re-padded so it plays very well. There are a few little dings that can be felt but not seen on the bow. There is no evidence of any major repairs. Most of the lacquer wear is confined to a few spots on the bottom back of the bell with light player wear across the rest of the body. Please see the photos for more details. The serial number is 315929 making this an early 1950’s vintage tenor saxophone. The engraving on the bell is beautiful and crisp. It reads “King Super 20 The H.N. White Co Cleveland Ohio.” There are incredibly ornate leaves and flowers engraved around the words and down the bell. The bell keys are engraved as well and there are pearl side keys. This tenor saxophone also comes with the original sterling silver sleeve/double socket neck, which is in good shape although there is evidence that a little pull down was repaired at some point in the past. It comes in a new replacement case. No mouthpiece is included. This saxophone has a warm, mellow sound that King is well known for. Intonation is spot on and the overtones are beautiful.
