Buescher S-1 – 1964
This is a vintage Buescher S-1 “Super 400” alto saxophone in original lacquer finish, serial number 394704. The alto is fresh off of the repair bench of Saxquest tech Josh Creekmore. Josh took his time on this one and did it up right. It now is in perfect playing condition with a new set of Tru-Seal synthetic pads as well as all new corks, felts and a very thorough key regulation. Alto ships out with original neck and box hard case. 
 
The body of the saxophone is in very nice physical condition from top to bottom showing some standard play wear. All of the key work, guards and key posts are in great shape. There is no history of past solder repair on this saxophone. The only point of mention is the wear along the outer bell flare. This saxophone does include the original neck with under slung octave key. The neck is in nice physical condition and has never been pulled down. 
 
The S-1 shows off construction similar construction to the Buechser Top Hat and Cane model. Including the placement of the B and Bb bell keys as well as the tone ring on the under side of the bell flare. This is a powerful free blowing alto and is ideal for the modern gigging pro who needs a good horn on a budget. The powerful core sound of the alto allows it to nicely function in straight ahead jazz settings as well as commercial music (soul and funk).
