Gold Plate Martin Handcraft
This is a very pretty vintage Martin Hand Craft alto saxophone from 1925, serial number 60447. The saxophone is in beautiful condition featuring the original gold plate finish. It does show mild history of past play time but all in all is in amazing physical condition. The one area of note on this sax is at some-point the bow was slightly pushed in and it was necessary for a tech to re-solder the lower portion of the bow cap back onto its base. All of the original key work and guards  are intact and are in great condition with no signs of past repair or alteration. The Martin Handcraft features beveled tone hole construction and a trill G# key. Its original marching lyre is also intact and has never been re-attached.  
The Martin Handcraft is a very fun to play and free blowing saxophone. Because of its early vintage and gold plated finish this saxophone is most ideal for the American vintage collector. A previous different shop previously overhauled this saxophone with leather pads and metal resonators. It is currently playing decently through some leaks but would need some basic set-up and adjustment before it could be considered in perfect playing condition.   
This saxophone ships out playing in as is condition in a non original case.
