Early 80's Mirafone 188 CC for sale with shopworn but sturdy hard case. This time, I'm throwing in the "like new" Reunion Blues cordura gig bag at no extra charge. $4,000 will take it all. The horn has 5 vented rotors, no dents, slides all work, etc., etc. And it plays beautifully. The horn is raw brass, but shines up great with a little elbow grease (actually quite a bit of elbow grease!), if that matters.
I have had this up for sale for some time and I believe it hasn't sold because the lacquer has been removed. So, I am willing to entertain "best offers" now as well. This is a great deal for somebody, no kidding.
Anyway, I would prefer to sell to someone within a few hundres miles of central Texas so we could arrange a personal try out and avoid shipping costs. But I've successfully shipped another horn to Alaska, so what the heck. Buyer would need to pay shipping costs, if any.
Pictures available, just e-mail me at lm(AT)corridor.net
Or give me a call at (512) 396-6182.
Thanks for looking!
