Need Alto neck

Picked up a old 1959 Conn Shooting Star alto sax for my daughter to use in marching band. I don't want her to mess up her pro horn, Daddy spent way too much money on for her to drop and dent up on the field. But I need a neck for this horn. Been told that not just any neck will fit. Is this true? Maybe this cheap sax was not so cheap! So I guess I'm looking for a cheap fix for this problem. (under $100 or I will just buy another horn for $300 for marching band) thanks

    check ebay. under 100 rules out just getting a new one made (gloger-handkraft) and no, necks between sax manufacturers are not interchangeable, unless youre really lucky. (and with a conn you wont be)

      I guess I'm just going to have to put this horn up for sale for $100. Although she said that a King neck fit and worked but could not get tight enough. I could aways solder in a shim on the neck. We will see what happens. I will still have to find a neck that I can mod.
