Vintage Buescher Original Gold Plated True Tone Alto Saxophone, Serial #179069
This is a vintage Buescher True Tone alto saxophone in original gold plate, serial number 179069. The alto was recently cleaned up in the shop and is now overhaul ready. Due to the backed up status of our repair shop we are moving some items from our inventory in as is status at a premium price.
The sax does feature original gold plate with excellent coverage. Its shows some fairly standard cosmetic wear around the major touch points around the back of the body tube. There is some history of past body work around the lower bow and bow cap area. It does have a re-sodler on the key guard feet to low C. The saxophone does feature the original snap resonators on every key except the bisc Bb key. Includes original gold plated neck in excellent condition.
Overall this horn is in tremendous physical condition and if you were looking to take on a project for your home work bench, or have a favorite tech you like to use; this horn would be perfect.
Once fixed up, these horns can be very fun to play and can be extremely sweet sounding and free blowing players.
