Sax pornography


Monk'sDream sent me a link to a SBA alto from Ralph Morgan's personal collection that was make especially for the Selmer's head designer. Dave the Junk Dude is selling this horn on his site. This horn was a unique prototype for the Mark VI and is about the most beautiful alto I've even seen. Before you look at the pics you may want to put a towel over your keyboard so you don't get drool all over it.

Whooah!
The tatooed lady at the circus!
How much is it expected to fetch?

I heard that Ralph's widow was offered $9k but refused because she didn't want it going to a school kid.
Can you imagine a high-schooler bringing a horn like this to Jazz band?
