Just browsing through the sold C-Mels on ebay, noticing that whilst the better straight-neck Conns seem to be very much outstripping all the other models – when I noticed this Buescher. Click here for the ebay listing.
Ok, so the mouthpiece is upside down, it’s a Buescher but with a straight neck… Hmmm, a Conn neck ? Possibly, but it’s a bit out of proportion, looks a bit too short for a C neck – so probably a Conn ALTO microtuner neck ?
Why not, it’s got a Holton case as well – I’ll just go and see what I can make out of mix-n-match bits. Should make for some interesting combinations !
Pity this one sold for just over $200, when real Bueschers, with a real Buescher neck, and real Buescher case, often sell for less…
Seems like ‘buyer beware’ is still a valid comment.
