I have just picked up a King C Melody in excellent condition, plays in tune with good intonation - really well made and well kept example. It is with Griff for a look over at the moment and he pointed out that on the bell either side of the King engraving have been added the letters "BG". Since the sax probably dates to the early/mid 20s, and engraving initials is not exactly common - any well informed ideas who this just might have belonged to? I can only think of Benny Goodman or Benny Golson. Of course it could be nothing, but somebody out there might have heard a rumour...seems stupid not to at least ask. I don't know anything about the sax's history apart from I bought it from a guy in England recently. I will add a photo when it is back from Griff.
