This Conn 38B is as clean as they come. The horn and case both show extremely little use. The GF420207v serial # indicates it was a factoery 2nd made in 1974. The horn looks and plays so well I thought the v was a scratch until I examined it closer under a lupe and it is indeed a hand etched 'v''. Well I have been a professional player for 45 years and have sold a lot of horns and played a lot of 38B's, this is one of the nicest looking and best playing ones I've come across. I am guessing the reason it was a 2nd is some lacquer crazing on the bottom of the bell and that is only a guess for it only is visible under the brightest of direct light. Apparently the integrity of the finish is not suspect for it looks like a new horn and this is not a refinished instrument it is 100% all original. After 25 years it still looks like a new axe. I went over this horn from top to bottom removed 2 very small dents on the top of the bell plus it has all new corks and felts and it is now 100% ready to play. The case is also very nice and I will include a mouthpiece I know whomever ends up with this horn will love it.

I've been asked about the condition of the valves they are like new actually this horn needs to be played so they break in.
