Now that's just weird. What do you imagine the screw at the cork for???
Looks to me as if the cylindrical part is fixed (soldered) at the end of the cone. The screw clamp at the cork is for locking the second, telescoping cylindrical tube (to which the cork is attached), which fits inside the first. In this picture, the cork tube is pushed all the way in. This design causes as many problems as it cures.
John, do you have the ebay item # ?
or a link ?
That's what I was initially thinking.
But looking at the picture it looks as though the tube opening is the same width as the back part of the tube.
And looking at the tube near the neck, it looks as if it was pulled out a bit from the "dirty part", then I saw the inconsistencies in the neck area.
A better picture(s) would certainly be helpful ...
well just have to wait to see more pictures ...I imagine they would make the telescoping section as thin-walled as possible to avoid a big diameter step, and the cork end thicker for structural reasons. The inside bore would remain the same.
Sure Steve. Here is the eBay link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/120828262165?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649
I have written to the seller asking for pictures of the neck with the corked part removed, and he wrote back asking for my email so he could send them to me. I will keep everyone posted.
I win the thread!I have seen variations on this style of "microtuner" neck on a variety of horns -- some Conn stencils, some Holtons, Pierrets, etc. -- but this one doesn't look at all original and I've not seen any Bueschers that have any form of a microtuner neck.
I agree with the supposition that a past owner used a mouthpiece that made him sound too sharp, so he decided to try out his 1337 soldering skillz.
