I have a used R13 from 1963, serial # 78078 which was overhauled three years ago by Wesley Rice ( ). His work is outstanding. Cork pads on all but one tone hole on the upper joint. the horn is now in great shape and plays beautifully. It has Buffet Nickel silver plated keys, which show some wear, but are in good shape. Also an almost new Buffet attache case with keys.
About 6 months after Wes overhauled it, I picked up a used R13 greenline which I have come to like very much as well, since I play in 2 community bands, and we play about 20 outdoor concerts a season between the two. My plan was to play the greenline outdoors and the grenadilla inside, but the grenadilla R13 has hardly been played since, and it deserves to be played. If you're interested, I'd sell it for about $1500, and give you the option for a Wes Rice reverse taper grenadilla barrel that Wes hand picked for it when he did the overhaul for $140.
