    You might check the link that addresses (not "dresses" ;-)) the naked lady engraving at:

    thx Lloyd...i live on that site cause i play and trade saxes also...speaking of the naked Lady...here are some interesting engravings on what they called " Virtuoso Deluxe " on saxes...I believe this Full Naked Lady on my cornet falls into this level Deluxe....the interesting thing is I have searched and can not find a Full Naked Lady on anything Conn at least that displays a fully unclothed body shot ( backside and breast ) like the one I lucked out on. If anyone finds one similar in that respect please post or provide a link. :grouphug:

    Equal opportunity: I'm looking for a trumpet with a naked man on it.

    No, wait: Naked is not a good look for a man. :-P

    Wow I found some really stunning engravings...alot of them are on saxes but some on trumpets too etc....as you scroll down .....the first Conn trumpet/cornet that you see closely resembles the exact type of work that is on mine ( although there is NO Naked Lady ) however the dog you see with the open mouth and the tongue sticking out is on mine above my Naked Lady....they even say the guys name who did it " Julius Stenberg " ( maybe he did mine... sure looks like his work :thumbsup: )....Ladys on the thread my wife said the same thing " where are all the naked dudes on these old trumpets !!!! I guess all the engravers were guys !!!!!!! Are you :shock:
    Also there are some examples of pretty unclothed ladys !!!!:-o I guess mine is not alone in her bare condition of artist vision hahahahahaa.;-)
    PS...it looks like Conn was not the only company employing the Naked Lady Theme ! :evil:
    PSS...still there is no exact example of my Lady with the wings and wand and hat pictured from the back I have found !! :D These engraving guys seemed to have mixed things up pretty well. Besides the ladys there are other stunning engravings of castles and birds and landscapes etc....this is interesting stuff ! Check it out. :play:

    I second the suggestion to send it to Mark Metzler. He is one of the best and specializes in Conns. I would trust him with any of my horns and have. My 80A restoration is shown on his examples page.
