This is a vintage Buescher Aristocrat alto saxophone in gold lacquer, serial number 270902. The Aristocrat Series I is a fabulous vintage American saxophone. At the time they were manufactured in the late 1930's they were generally considered to have a sweeter more focused sound in comparison to the Conn models of the same period. This particular alto is being sold in as is condition on an older set of pads. It does include the original snap resonators, amber rollers as well as original gold plated springs and a non original neck. The neck is most likely a Buescher stencil neck.
The saxophone was re-lacquered at some point in the past. Its current lacquer finish is in clean condition overall. Its bow and bow cap area is in great shape as is the original neck. We would love to do this sax up right in our shop but because our repair line for overhauls is now over 2 months long we are selling some of our inventory in “as is” condition. If you have a favorite tech in mind to work on this horn you could get into it for a great price. 
This saxophone ships in as is condition. It will ultimately need to be overhauled before it is ready for any serious playing. Ships with original wood box case with purple interior.
