re-lacquered, and adequate dent removal.
If valves are good - and no filing or sanding on the body (likely not,
since - a good sign - dent-removal is visible), it's a real bargain.
:arrow: There is no contemporary equal to these instruments at any price.
I just can't think of any currently-handmade F tubas (that aren't $$$$$zillions),
and - if there are - their designs are not equal to this design.

You might want to look at the post a bit further down about using "OBO" in an ad. It means you have to sell to the highest bidder. Maybe you want to use "price negotiable" instead.

Yeah, it's a little picky but better picky than getting sued, especially on this gorgeous instrument.

I'd wager that the person who posted this knows how to pack stuff to be very gorilla-resistant.

Bump for a great tuba.......

Regarding OBO: Maybe we should adopt the "or near offer" used by our friends across the pond. What "near" is would be difficult to define in court. "Nearest" (like best) would be an entirely different story.
Honestly, before this subject recently came up, I had never given it much thought.

Think of all the people who've seen this ad, and have purchased inferior F tubas for more money since this ad first appeared.

I can't believe it is still available. I desperately wish I could get it.
