Excellent condition Antigua 5200 series tenor sax, serial number STS040235. This is a solid intermediate level sax, perfect for advancing saxophonists looking to step up from the beginner horn to a more quality instrument.
This tenor features a traditional gold lacquer body with keywork to high F#. It is built well and feels solid under your fingers. Physically, it shows just minor cosmetic scratching, and no dents, dings, or previous repairs, including no resolders. Pads are in like-new condition with no wear of note. Honestly, it doesn't appear the sax has been played very much, and is coming to its new owner ready to go for the long haul. It will receive a fresh adjustment from the Saxquest repair shop before shipping, so you can buy with confidence that it will be in perfect regulation when you receive it.
This tenor plays with a quick and lively response, with just a touch of positive resistance to give you something to push against. Overall it has a slightly brighter tone, but you can tamp that down with the right mouthpiece if you want something darker. Very forgiving player, perfect for saxophonists looking to build on their foundation, and it offers a lot of control. Ships in its original shaped case.
