This is an incredible instrument! This Bach Mercedes was built in 1953 (see original shop papers)! The Mercedes model is a medium bore, with a number 38 bell. This is the same model that Freddie Hubbard used to play. It is in amazing condition, considering its age. No red rot, and some lacquer wear. There are no dents or dings, and the compression is great! It comes with original metal valve guides as well (in addition to the nylon guides currently in the horn).
This is an amazing find, and will not last long in the shop! Pick up this amazing New York Bach today!
