I have a really excellent vintage 3B listed on BrassArk right now: http://www.brassark.com/sale/

Be sure to click on the "trombones" checkbox to see the current listings.

Here's the description from the listing:

Vintage 1960s King 3B Cleveland
The Cleveland made King 3B trombones are some of the most desirable versions of the 3B. This one is in particular clean condition, showing some minor lacquer wear from typical use. No signs of major dings and the slide action is good. Big sound with clarity and brilliance. Would be great for commercial and pit work. $1350 with original case.

I have an very nice King 3B Plus (2103) for sale that I have used as my number one jazz horn for 7 years.
The King 3BPL Plus Legend Series Trombone offers a slightly more open feel compared to the standard 3B. The 3B Plus features a .525"" bore for a full sound plus an 8"" one-piece hand hammered bell and nickel silver outer slides for excellent response and action. Yellow brass Lacquer.

The King 3B Legend Trombone has been the preferred trombone by studio musicians and professional jazz players for decades. Like the 3B, the King 3B Plus features nickel silver outer hand slide for excellent projection and open upper register. The 3B Plus also features an 8-inch bell with a taper that offers a quick response with a subtle brilliance. This instrument merits serious consideration by any serious player seeking to find a horn they can live with for a long time. It's lightning-fast slide action and tremendous agility revolutionized both trombone playing and trombone manufacturing when it was first introduced, and it remains a gold standard for professional trombonists the world over. I'm asking $1,095 for it plus shipping.
