Ships with Complete Saxquest Overhaul

This is a great price on a 1947 vintage Buescher “Top Hat & Cane” engraved tenor sax, serial number 312265. Arguably the best jazz tenor Buescher ever made, the TH&C horns play with the same resonance and warmth of their Aristocrat line, but have a bigger bell and certainly a bigger, more robust sound.


This tenor was relacquered awhile back, but honestly it is one of the best jobs you'll ever see. The original factory engraving remains pristine; I'd bet that the body tube at least was chemically stripped and not buffet at all. The horn shows evidence of past dent work in the bottom bow and on the neck (original, with underslung octave key), but otherwise is straight.


This tenor arrived to us on old pads, so we will completely repad the horn and replace all material. It still has all of the original gold plated Norton springs and the original Buescher snap-in metal resonators, so we'll reuse all that hardware and just replace the soft material to bring the horn up to snuff. Once complete, this horn will ship in perfect adjustment, and backed by our full year mechanical warranty. All work is included in the price. Grab it before it's gone!
