I am Kuya Earl I am new to this forum and I would like to know if anybody can tell me what is the model of this serial number? They are not bad, but not as well built many times, and iffy. I am Kuya Earl I am new to this forum and I would like to know if anybody can tell me what is the model of this serial number? He goes through them and he has a money back guarantee. I got it for only about 0, sturdy case, no horn damage, but had to put an extra 0 in it above the repad to take some of the play out of the rods. Nice big sound, stays in regulation, good action, likes all mouthpieces.I know it is a Conn N142877 I have always wanted to learn how to play and I am looking to buy a good used one rather than buy a brand new piece of junk. You can find them that play extremely well or some dogs, but I guess thats any horn. You will most likely find a much better deal than what many refer to as a Mexi-Conn.

Its a 1970 built in one of the Nogales plants - either Arizona at the Art Best Plant, or in Mexico. It will be marked MEXICO if it was made in that country.
In most cases the reason is for the one stated above, but it is always worth checking when buying an instrument.
Ask the seller privately for the number and do a search for that instrument.
I personally would say go with aa Chu Berry..which is M150000-M220000 (serial number range) or somewhere in there. "Just noticed that the "lol" symbol looks like a drowning guy, and all you see is his head and arms sticking out of the water. Otherwise, it is a Nogales AZ made student "DIRECTOR" model sax.
They are almost always great players and can be had for a small amount of money...always a good looker but close you eyes (the old paper bag trick) and they will chance your idea about vintage Conns. This first timer thread was posted in the entirely wrong sub forum (Marketplace Rules Forum), so I have moved it to the correct "Conn" sub forum.
kind of like a consolation prize since it didn't have the microtuner.
Also, I see that almost every lick of lacquer is gone.
The serial number is in the right range, but also it has a swivel thumbrest. But Conn was in the midst of experimenting a bit with design and features. For reasons unknown to me, these are called 'New York' style necks.
My guess is that it was to make it sound special...
What remains behind is the bare brass body which looks to be in excellent shape.
