The body of this alto is in excellent physical condition. The body tube and bell show a very clean original gold plate finish with crisp engraving. All of the original key work and key guards are with the saxophone. Some of the key work is starting to show some cosmetic wear to the gold plate finish.  As its sits the body tube, original neck and bell are all in great shape.

(see picture 19 ) The original neck with micro tuner is included with this saxophone and is in outstanding physical condition, it has never been pulled down. This alto also shows off a nice set of original key rollers.
