HELP, I Want One!

Talk about a real looker! This is a vintage Buescher Big B tenor saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 306157. We see plenty of old Buescher saxophones come through our shop and very few of them look this nice. The dark honey colored lacquer looks absolutely stunning. The Big B also has all of the original gold plated springs, Buescher snap resonators and the original amber rollers. 
The tenor is in great physical condition top to bottom and shows a little bit of modest play wear. The bell flare is in perfect condition and has never been pulled down or damaged.  Its body tube, bow and bow cap are all in great shape. The bow cap is perfect and has never been pushed in or dented. The original neck is with this tenor and has never been pulled down. This saxophone has had zero re-solders in the past. 
The Big B is a very versatile and powerful free blowing player. Sonically these horns tend to have a bigger core sound and are much punchier then the earlier True Tone and Aristocrat models. This one plays exceptionally smooth and has rich sound with beautiful presence. The palm keys are full and clear in and the low end is ultra fat. Saxquest re-padded this tenor in late 2016 and it is playing like a total monster. It features all new leather Valentino premium pads with the original Buescher snap resonators. The fine tuned set-up also includes all new corks and felts. Saxquest will also check over the horn again before shipping to ensure it arrives in perfect playing condition.
