This is a vintage Buescher Big B tenor sax in original lacquer, serial number 310799. The previous owner of this sax played it professionally and kept it well maintained. These Big B's are awesome free blowing players and feature an exceptionally rich core sound. Projection and power are also perks of the Big B. Due to their flexibility and big sound these horns are especially popular today with R&B and straight ahead jazz tenor players.
The Big B shows off its original lacquer finish with a dark honey tint. It also show cases the original gold plated Norton Springs, amber rollers on the table keys and metal snap resonators. The body shows typical play wear for its vintage but has never had any major body work. There is just one re-solder on the top key guard foot to low C. The bow and bow cap are both in very solid condition and have never seen any major trauma. Right now there is a few smaller size dings around the bow that we are going to remove in the shop. Its bell and bell flare are both in great shape. This saxophone does include the original neck. The neck is in good shape and has never been pulled down.
The tenor is currently being set up in the Saxquest shop and will ship out in perfect playing condition. Saxquest pro set-up will include a dissemble and cleaning of this saxophone and replacement of all the key corks and felts. It will also include removing the small dings from the bow. Don't miss out on this killin Big B.
