The BG Mouthpiece is a product of Selmer

It was mentioned in an advertisement in "The Metronome", May 1938

If you bought the BG moutpiece you would receive a 16-page Benny Goodman
booklet

I hope this will help

| Just had a chat with a sax player friend who told be about an old
| Benny Goodman signature mouthpiece he's come across. He
| described it as having the initials BG in gold on the front where
| the opening in a Selmer ligature would be, and above that on the
| beak portion of the mouthpiece "Benny Goodman" in script.
| He's wondering if anybody out there has ever seen a mouthpiece
| like this and who might have made and when. Ring any bells
| with trivia wizards?

| Regards,
| Rob
