Repair Shop Special
This is a vintage Buescher Gold Plated True Tone alto saxophone, serial number 194626. If you are looking for a prime example of a gold plate True Tone this one is going to be very appealing. The body is in great shape and does not show any history of major past repair. Its  body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in excellent condition. All of the original key work is intact and in good shape. The keys all move freely and nothing is frozen. Its marching lyre mount is also still on the horn and has never had to be repaired. The original neck on the sax is also in great shape and has never been pulled down. 
 
One of the coolest things about this alto is it still has all of the original gold plated Buescher snap resonators. For the most part it looks like this instrument has spent most of its life in the case, so it would be a fairly straight forward overhaul.
 
 It is to the point now where it will need an overhaul before it will be ready for any serious playing. We would love to do the work ourselves but because we are backed up we are selling this one in “as is” condition. Ships with original Buescher hard case.
