This instrument has been well loved over the years but still has a good tune yet to be played. It was built in the early 1980’s from what I can make out. As you would expect with a Bach of this age the lacquer is tatty but it is mechanically sound. It has had a full service, chem clean etc. It has the open wrap F slide which makes for a free blowing tone when using the plug. The slide is slick with the inners showing little to no wear. It is presented in its original Selmer company hard case which is still solid.
