Hey Guys... grab a cup of coffee or a beer ... this is pretty good.
I saw an ad in Craigslist for a 1950 Bach for $55 .. how could I go wrong ... so we drive 70 miles and meet a guy who has to be Tavin's brother or relative
please watch attached video to get the picture of Tavin

here's vid of what happened
DSCF1038 - YouTube
I was going to pass on it ... he asked me if it would make a good lamp ... why do people.. never mind
He drops the price so low but really... I don't want it..
Cathy (my wife) felt otherwise and hands him $15 .. he then trieds to give us $5 back ... which of course ain't happening
Cathy wants everyone to know the slides and valves move freely... and the compression.. pops nicely
Does anyone recougnise what the horn the tuning slide goes to? It looks familiar.. definitely not Bach
We figure the body is a Buescher body.. has a Bach bell.. and of course light flex shaft lead pipe.
anyone need some parts..PM me
So Cathy feels good at least these guys got there beer money for Friday night.
Words cannot express how excited I am with this find
