Hi all, I purchased a conn stencil the other week with a king Cleveland from jonf. I have decided I only want the work done on the Cleveland as I've not had a Cleveland before and my tech is busy so I'm popping it back on here at exactly what I paid for it. £140 and £10 to cover post. It's a kalashens 'clear tone'
Some of the notes play but it needs work. I'm sure the original listing will be in the yard sale with the photos :) thank you & Jon, hope you don't mind. I was a bit impulsive buying two.

Possibly not, a lot of Conns had tiny grub screws locking screws and rods. Very fiddly.

hi all, sorry for lack of response. Been a mad week. It's on the Bay now, finishing today. You can see pics here, hopefully the link will work :)

I wouldn't recommend it to learn on, simply because of the older style key work in my opinion but once overhauled it will have a fantastic, fat Conn sound
I'm hoping I'm going to get bids on it since I've priced it about half what I purchased it for hahahaha! (gonna lose out again)
