It is in mint condition. It is the top of the line in the series. The wooden grain is absolutely gorgeous! It is the grenadilla with a deep black brown with tones of red! It's a member of the rosewood family, I just found out . So pretty. It is breath taking. The sound is deep smooth and sweet. I am having trouble getting the exact date down but I a believe it is the late 50's or barely 60's first year. The keys have great action. This instrument has been refurbished. All new pads, cork, springs. The keys silver nickle. The tenon are silver nickle.I have a gorgeous wooden clarinet. It has brand new cork, pads and springs for a deep robust sweet luscious sound. This is a work of art with hand carved draftsmanship work on the bell. The tone tone is smooth and the key action is crisp. These go for over $1250. This is an USA made instrument and the serial number is 297XX.
