Martin Handcraft
This is a great vintage Martin Handcraft alto sax in original lacquer, serial number 123604. The Handcraft altos play with a super sweet sound and an easy free blowing response. The construction also features the Martin style beveled tone holes and moveable thumb rest. This one also features the iconic “City Scape” engraving with airplane, city scape and a eagle. The body of this saxophone does not have signs of any major past repair. The bell to body brace is currently pushed into the body just a little bit. It is other wise in very good condition regarding the body tube, bell, bell flare and bow region. The original neck is with the sax. It does show some dings. 
 
This saxophone is currently playing with some leaks on mostly older pads. You could make it play better with some minor servicing on its current pads but it ultimately needs a complete re-pad before it will be in perfect playing condition. Martins are a favorite among the Saxquest shop and are one of the unsung hero's in the vintage sax world. We would love to do this sax up right in our shop but because of the long repair line this summer we are now selling it in as is condition at a lower price. Instrument does ship with a premium leather reunion blues gig bag.
