    Optimist, if it had never been out of its case and in original wrapping then perhaps 1/2 that figure.

    That one makes the Martin Committee for $8k seem like a real bargain.

    Well ........


    You know, my instructor has one (Mt. Vernon Bach Bb) ..... I noticed that his looks like it's lost some of its lacquer. I'll alert him ... he could have a nicer looking horn for only 16 thousand!!!

    That's just crazy talk to think about only getting one musical instrument for that kind of money ....... let me calculate ...... you could get roughly 320 mouthpieces for that. Now that really could be a bathtub full.

    I like how they were very careful to hide the damage to the bell. Looks like someone sat on it and it's making a right turn, but the pictures try to hide it.
