but my choice might be the old Di Mauro Saint Louis Blues , complete with contemporary Stimer pickup. Needs work , though:

this Di Mauro Boogie Woogie may also be of interest, from the sale of the Johnny Hallyday collection , it was apparently once owned by Tchavolo Schmitt:

    How difficult/ expensive to ship these to the US, with CITES and all? They all seem dirt cheap.

    From my investigations of the CITES problem, they can be sold within Europe (the EEC) with no certificates needed, but to cross borders or go to USA (or in my case Australia) they will need CITES certification and this MUST be provided by the seller, so at the moment all international sales are at a checkmate. You could take a chance, but customs at the port of entry can confiscate - and incinerate - anything not complying. The next CITES meeting next May does have a potential amendment on the agenda that may exempt some musical instruments but this is still at the discussion stage.

    the Patenotte sold for 320 Euros, (365 USD)
    the DiMauro SLB & Stimer for 480 Euros (545 USD)
    Deal of the day -maybe- a 1974 Selmer Mk6 tenor saxophone,
    miscatalogued as a less valuable Mk7, for 2300 E
    ( add commission & taxes to these prices )
