This is a later vintage Buescher Aristocrat alto saxophone in original lacquer, serial #338894. While it might not be the prettiest horn we have in the shop this alto is in solid physical condition and can be had for a great price. The alto does feature the railroad track style key guards, Buescher “Snap” resonators, gold plated Norton springs and the original colored rollers on the table keys.
The body tube, bow and bell of the sax are all in nice condition and show no history of serious past repair. The bow cap and bell flare are also both in excellent condition and have never been pushed in or damaged. The original neck is also in good shape and has never been pulled down.
This saxophone came to us on some very old pads but is still playing quite well as it currently sits. Ultimately the saxophone will need to be completely overhauled in the near future if you are going to put any serious amount of play time on it. Because of our shops busy schedule we are offering this one as is at a lower price.
