This is a very tasty horn indeed, I've used it for a few years for sessions. To me this is really absolutely the best for rock & roll. It has been serviced and kept in good blowing order by Stephen (Haynes) Howard. Good pads plus he's checked there are none of the soldered tonehole leak issues that can strike these.

It's not the prettiest, it looks to me like it has a little of the original lacquer but looks like a DIY spray lacquer has been done over the top. A prime candidate for delaquering.

It has good intonation, that great Martin lush rich yet somehow darkly creamy sound.

Not yet, but I'm glad you mentioned this, someone emailed me the other day about it and I completely forgot!
