This is a super limited run horn. This particular horn is numbered 101 of 150 made. This is the Reference 54 "Firebird" Europe and most recent of the bird series. This horn plays great, well in tune, and has a nice focused clean sound to it.No high F# and is just exceptional overall. As you can see, there is normal wear from being played and the lacquer is wearing in some spots, mainly where it rubs against my pants leg, normal touch points like the palm keys and side keys, and there is a some wear where it contacts on the front of the bell with the sax stand. There is no sign of repair, dents or dings that I can see.
The case is well worn and a little beat up, but fully functional and protective. Pads are good, it was recently adjusted, and plays great top to bottom. There are some scratches here and there from rubbing against the stand, clothing, etc..Pretty much the normal stuff you see on a horn thats been played. I really don't know how to price this horn, as I've only ever seen 2 others on sale and they were on retail sites for much higher prices, open to reasonable offers!
