Not all “slant” Links are created equal. This is one of the best I’ve ever encountered.
It is a “no USA” vintage Link Tone Edge in beautiful condition. It has normal ligature scratches but no abuse at all. It is marked “AN .68” on the side, showing that somebody ( possibly Adam Niewood) has made some adjustments to it at some time. Other than the tip opening, I see no other signs of alterations.
How does it play? Fabulous. It’s Wayne Shorter all the way.
