    SELLER REFURBISHED, my favorite eBay phrase, means being creative. Don't just put things back in the same place, where you unsoldered them.:lol:

    Maybe, people are taller in Bulgaria?

    TL,

    It's a "tuning slide adjustment on the fly" placement. You put a ring in there and go through some major contortions to get a finger up there to work it .....:dontknow: ..... Who's got a pinky finger that's long enough to use that configuration? WHAT were they thinking???

    Hey, it's got a 1st slide trigger, too. You could actually make THREE seperate intonation adjustments AT THE SAME TIME. Imagine ..... :lol:

    Unless I just don't get it, isn't the part you are looking at just a mount for a marching band music holder?

    I always love the "fully overhauled"--"98% original lacquer" and "no dents, dings or damages". I always thought "overhauling" involved disassembly, reassembly, damage repair, dent removal, polish and refinish. At least it did the last time I had one done--it also cost me more than the $700 the seller is asking.
