Vauen Luxus 6570 [restored, new mouthpiece]

After some sandpaper work and Oil to create a simple contrast plus a mouthpiece change now looks much better, don't you agree?

Stunning conversion, Sid. Wonderful work. I am not only deeply appreciative, but even more deeply envious! You have a great skill there. Very, very well done.
