This is a late 50s era Buescher Aristocrat Big B engraved bari sax, serial number 353175. While it has all original parts and hardware, this horn has seen better days. At this point, it is either a restoration project for someone with serious repair chops, or as a parts horn for other projects.


The photos tell the tale on this one. Lots of past dents and repairs, and the horn has been relacquered at some point in its life. It has all the makings of a sax that spent some time in the school system. However, it isn't all bad. It has all of its original railroad style keys intact, and still has all of the Buescher snap-in metal resonators as well as most of the original gold plated Norton springs. The original neck unfortunately is pretty rough, with a couple patches along the bottom brace; not sure it is redeemable.


If you are a repair tech looking for parts for other Buescher projects, or if you are ready to put 25+ hours into restoring this one, it can be had for the cheap. Ships in a hard case.
