Vintage (70's ?)  Lawton 8*BB tenor sax mouthpiece

I say " 70's " rather tentatively, as it was so far back that I honestly can't remember when I bought this mouthpiece.  Bought brand new from Bill Lewington's magical emporium, when they were in the West End - just the other side of Cambridge Circus from Shaftesbury Avenue - and I seem to remember the salesman saying "Have you tried the new Lawton?" when I explained that I wanted something with as much bite, but a wider range of sounds, than my faithful '0' chamber Berg Larsen.  I can guarantee, that it is in absolutely "original" condition, no modifications, just as it left Geoff Lawton.

In an  interview with JazzNation, Geoff Lawton says "...and I've been making them ever since. You're talking forty-odd years...", so the timescale fits.  All I can remember is that I parted with around 20 quid for a spanking new Lawton.  I may well sell this tenor Lawton for a great deal more than that - enjoy the pictures !  Click on any of the images for a bigger picture - Note : some browsers may require you to click on the picture again for a full-size display...
