Fresh Saxquest Overhaul!
This is a very pretty vintage Buescher Model 156 tenor saxophone, serial #343689. The body is in great shape and shows off a lush original lacquer finish. It plays with an awesome free blowing response and is on the darker side in comparison to many of the other Buescher tenors we have had in the shop in the last few years.
 
The Buescher is the most recent project horn of Saxquest tech Ben Reece. It features a fresh professional overhaul and is in perfect playing condition. Ben really took his time doing this one up right. It now features a new set of premium leather pads, new corks, felts and a very finely tuned regulation of the key work. This tenor also shows off the original amber rollers on the table keys and gold plated springs. The majority of the original Buescher snap resonators are also still on the sax. 
 
The body of the tenor is in very nice condition from top to bottom and shows off a nice honey tint original lacquer finish. There has been some past dent work around the lower bow. The work was done very well. This saxophone does include the original neck. There was previously a small pull down on the neck but it has been recently brought back up to its true position. The body tube, bell, bell flare and bow cap are all in excellent original condition. 
 
Do not miss out on this super sweet player!
