    I am always looking for a good deal but am passing this one up. Looks like a great horn and it is a "buy it" now type of transaction. Way undervalued by seller that is selling it for 675.

    Good luck for any takers out there.

    I sold my Mendez for $750ish last year... but mine had a replacement adjustable gap mpc receiver (still had OEM one in the case though!). Maybe I went to cheap!? I don't get what they mean by "$xxx with 3rd trigger, or $xxx without"... photo shows a cheap slide ring, not the normal Mendez trigger.

    I'd be suspicious of seller in weird webstore!

    Price in description is $975. One is a typo, but which? Quality Brass, the seller, has lots of experience selling old trumpets. You might want to alert them. They probabaly don't have the 3rd slide trigger and will have to come up with one - hence the price diff. there.
