    Here is another masterpiece by Leigh McKinney - Eclipse/First Class Brass

    Feast your eyes on this vintage Couesnon Monopole owned by a gentleman in Norway, which was recently overhauled by Leigh. It's done in scratch clear lacquer, with contrasting shiny gold lacquer on the slides, bits, and inside of the bell.

    Well...because Leigh likes challenges I'm guessing that he's doing it with one hand tied behind his back...and one eye closed! :wink:

    On April 1st I'm going to ask Leigh for a price quote...what would it cost to refinish a "white" trumpet in scratch lacquer??? :shock:

    HA!!!

    All the best.

    Hey Ed,

    Have you been talking to my wife??? :shock: She thinks that I have a "wierd" sense of humor...that occasionally makes people almost chuckle. :wink:

    All the best.
