HELP, I Want One!

Killer Player!
This is a very pretty vintage Buescher Aristocrat in original silver plate finish, serial number 270235. It is always a nice to get in Aristocrat in pristine physical condition. This one is particularly nice and plays like a real dream. It was last professionally overhauled in another shop with leather pads with the use of the original Buescher snap resonators. The work is top notch and the horn has a great feel and response. In comparison to some other Aristocrats we have had in this one seems to be on the brighter side of the color spectrum. The key work is precisely regulated and allows for easy movement. It is especially smooth on the left hand table keys which is very important for the response of the bell keys.
Physically the sax is in outstanding condition down the body tube, bow, bell and gold washed bell flare. The bow cap is also in perfect condition and has never been pushed in or damaged in the past. Looking over the sax very closely I can see one re-solder to the guard foot on the low C key guard. This saxophone also does feature the original amber rollers, Buescher snap resonators and gold plated springs. The original Buescher 01 neck is in excellent condition. 
If you are looking for an example of a Buescher Aristocrat it is not going to get any sweeter. This one was last serviced in another shop. We are going to check it over before it goes out to ensure it is in perfect playing condition. Ships with wood box hard case.
