    FS: Pristine Besson Prestige 2052 made in England

    Posting this for a friend.
    For sale is a late English production Besson Prestige 2052 with serial number 879795. This instrument was one of the last to be made at the Besson Edgeware Road facility in London before the factory was closed and production moved to Germany, which dates it back to the early 2000s. The condition of the instrument is excellent as you can tell. There are some minor scratches and scuffs, but no dents or ripples are to be found. There is no sign of a major repair been done in the past. The silver finish is in excellent shape and 100% there. The gold accents are a little worn in some places where the hands touch the instrument like the upper valve caps and buttons, nothing major. The valves are in equally excellent condition and have been fitted with a new set of felts and guides, trigger action is smooth and comfortable. This instrument was selected from a batch by the original owner who happens to be a professional musician and has been played on full-time for 14 years by its owner before it was stored in the attic in favor for a newer instrument. Since the instrument was stored for some time, it will be cleaned and polished before sale.
    The instrument is located in Belgium. Pictures can be found here:
    Asking price is 4500 euro or best offer, shipping can be arranged. A soundwear gigbag will be included. You can contact the seller via e-mail:

    Price reduced to a more sensible 4500 euro after a long talk with the owner.
