I recently bought this brilliant trombone from a professional in Germany. He had it shipped in from the US where the father of the owner had sold the instrument to a rock & roll shop as he didn't know where else to take it. You will see from the photos that it is in incredible original condition, not having had much use in it's life. It is hard to believe this 'bone is a '69 model. The case is also in excellent condition! I have found that as much as I love it, I cannot fill it and it is a waste to store away. If there is sufficient interest I will sell this fantastic instrument. But please bear in mind I will not let this go for peanuts. I feel you will not find a better example of this instrument at this age. I don't buy or sell rubbish, so be assured this is genuine. Send me a PM for pics, but only if you are very serious please!
