This is a stellar condition, original gold plated Buescher True Tone series alto sax, serial number 109856. This horn has been recently restored using white roo pads and original style metal resonators, and looks incredible. It is a sweet player for those who love the classic American made horns.

 

The photos don't do this sax justice. It looks fantastic in person, with greater than 95% original gold plating intact. There some finish wear on both the right and left hand thumb rests from normal use, but that's about it. I see some evidence of a minor ding or two removed from the bottom bow, but the work is so good that you'll miss it unless looking really hard. No resolders that I can spot. The recent pad job has this horn playing great, with a lush, darker tone, and a richness that is hard to find on modern horns.

 

Looking at this alto, you'd never guess it is nearly 100 years old. Though easy enough to find these True Tones in silver, the gold plates are harder to come by, and especially one where the work has already been done. It is a sweet little horn, and ships in its original hard case.
