An ex friend of mine stole my Mark VI tenor sax in May of 2006 and sold it to the Sam Ash Music store on Colonial Rd in Orlando, Fl. She also sold my Muramatsu flute as well. She told them that I was a member of the Navy Band, which is true, and that I had died, which is not true. Sam Ash knows who they sold both instruments to, but will not give me that information, and says I have no right to any kind of compensation from them.
If anyone knows of this instrument, please let me know. The horn had original lacquer, and had been customized by Emilio Lyons. The instrument was made around 1962. In addition to this being a beautiful playing horn, it belonged to my grandfather who was a professional musician for over seventy years. He was my first teacher, and outside of Joe Viola was the best. At least Joe wouldn't hit me on the back of the head if I played a wrong note.
