Big B Tenor Sax
This is a vintage Buesceher Big B Aristocrat tenor saxophone in gold lacquer serial number 319539. If you are looking for a real work horse tenor this Big B is going to be an excellent choice. It is not the prettiest looking tenor but it has it where it counts. 
This tenor plays has a quick air intake and a rich free blowing response. The color on these tenors is warm and very flexible. In comparison to vintage Conn saxophones these Buescher's have a much sweeter and slightly more focused quality to the way they sound and respond. This saxophone was last worked on by Miles Ahead music. All of the pads are still in nice shape and have plenty of life left in them. This saxophone is also currently in line to be professionally set-up in the Saxquest shop. Once complete the tenor will be in perfect playing condition. 
The body of the sax is in nice condition showing history of past repair. It was re-lacquered in the past. The work was done well and was most likely done a very long time ago. Its current finish shows a nice dark honey color and clear engraving. This saxophone features all of the original key guards, amber key rollers, Norton gold plate springs and the original “Snap” metal resonators. The original neck was pulled down in the past but has been reparied and corrected to its true position. 
If you are looking to get into a nice vintage tenor at a quality price this Big B is going to be a great choice.
