I have played on many CB-50's and G-50's since the prototype to new ones off the line. I have owned a CB-50 and currently own a G-50 (no problem with the horn, I bought the last horn Mr Jacobs played on).
There is no difference between the CB-50 and the G-50. The receiver is the same, slide position, spit keys. The first CB-50's made had the leadpipe about 2" higher on the bell than the present models. That is the only difference I know of otherwise the horns are identical except the stencilling on the bell.
