I joined the club just recently with tenor SN 439xxx, brass neck, and very Martin-like warm sound, but with more clarity. Great intonation!
I have a question for you guys. Are all of your neck tenons straight? (I know that sounds obscene, but I'm talking literally. Sometimes a cigar IS really a cigar...) The neck checks out perfectly round, but on one side, visually it looks like it is not perfectly straight. Horn plays fine; I just wonder, does this affect its potential?
