For your consideration I offer this beautiful semi-pro flute by Gemeinhardt, model 3SB. Serial number 704874. This is an excellent instrument for the achieving student who has outgrown their beginner or step-up flute. Solid sterling silver body, foot, and headjoint. Gold-plated lip plate. Open-hole (French) keywork. In-line G for precise intonation. B foot with gizmo key. The current equivalent model 3SB NG sells for $1,679 new at online retailers. If you are looking to upgrade from your beginner or step-up flute, this is the instrument for you.
CONDITION: This instrument was well-cared-for and is in outstanding condition. It has just had a little overhaul work done by Empire Winds of North Syracuse and is ready to play right out of the case. No damage as far as I can see, just a few scratches from normal careful use. It is sold with a 90-day warranty on the playing condition. See pictures.
PLAYING QUALITIES: I am not a flutist, so I can't speak to the finer points of its playing qualities, but I can produce 2-1/2 octaves on it chromatically. I would be happy to set up an appointment for you to test-play it. NOTE that I make no representations made about its suitability for your intended use. WYSIWYG.
ACCESSORIES: Original French-style case; zippered case cover; cleaning rod; adjustment screwdriver. See pictures; WYSIWYG.
THE STRAIGHT DOPE: This Gemeinhard 3SB intermediate-model flute is in excellent condition. The equivalent horn new will cost you almost $1,700 at major retailers; you can own this nice one for $800 less! All sales FINAL unless I determine that I significantly misrepresented it. I'll be happy to answer any questions about the instrument itself. Sold by professional musician. Because of the high number of scammers, email via Craigslist relay ONLY; I will reply to serious inquiries with my phone number and email address.
ATTENTION SCAMMERS: I've seen it all. NO bank drafts; NO "agents"; NO meeting you at some parking lot; NO text messages; NO blind Gmail addresses. I may have been born at night, but not LAST NIGHT.
