This one's a modern instrument that wears 99% original bright silver finish, dents and dings now removed by our shop in Wichita.
A small silver patch covers a tiny crack to the first branch, but otherwise this one's in fine condition.
It came to us with some wear to the valves, so ALL THREE pistons have been replaced with new ones (see the photos!).
Suggested retail price is now $10,300 with street price / school price about $6500.
This one looks and plays like a new instrument, is clean a dent free.
Please see the linked photos at the bottom of our listing.
