HELP, I Want One!

Includes Saxquest Overhaul
This is a vintage Martin Handcraft “Skyline” alto saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 123521.These Martin altos are a great choice if you are looking for a great vintage power player at a great price. This one has an impressive free blowing response and an awesome sound. The alto has a great level of projection and punch. It leans a little towards the brighter side regarding sound color. This particular Martin is fresh out of the Saxquest shop and is in perfect playing condition with a professional overhaul by Josh Creekmore. Josh took his time doing this one up right. It now has a brand new set of premium leather pads, metal resonators and new corks and felts. The key regulation on the sax gives it a great feel and helps for fluid movement across the entire range of the instrument. 
The body of the sax is in nice and solid condition showing some history of repair. There is some traces of minor dent work and a handful of re-solders. The work was done extremely well and the horn is now back in its true condition and ready for a new home. All of the original keys and key guards  are on the horn and in good condition. Its neck is with the sax and is in good condition. The octave pip has been re-soldered.   
This saxophone ships in perfect playing condition with case.
