Replacement neck for 1936 Conn 6M

I am in need of a replacement for the double slung nmicro tune neck for my beautiful Conn 6M. I would like to know if anyone knows where I can get a standard, not micro tune type neck to fit this Sax? I would like to try out a non micro tune type neck, either underslunk octaave key or not. Any information will be appreciated.

    I think a Phil Barone neck will fit it. I know Paul Maslin in Chicago has one for $339.00. It is a new line of necks brought out by a mouthpiece maker. Paul also has a SBA neck, but it goes for $850.00

        Karsten gloger can make a new replica of any old sax neck for you, with whatever mods you desire. It will probably cost about 300.

          Karsten Gloger would be who I would recommend. He makes replacement necks for just about anything. They are quite expensive, but very good. You're looking at $800 for a silver neck and about $650 for a copper neck for a 6M through musicmedic.

          Yes, Karsten Gloger is in the Netherlands. I actullay walked past his shop when I was there a couple years ago. The Netherlands is a fun place to visit; lots of fun-loving friendly people without a care in the world!

          Sounds like a fun place to visit, I wish I could go and pick up my neck while there. The prices here are pretty steep, I might have to try the one from Paul Maslins due to the cost. Thanks again.

          Anyting you get from Paul Maslin will be good. I send all my horns to him for repair and adjustment/setup. I live in LA and still send my horns to Paul. Paul was referred to me by Fred Hemke.
