Martin Skyline
This is a vintage Martin Handcraft Committee tenor saxophone, serial number 117784. Manufactured in 1937 the “Skyline” Martin features beveled tone hole construction, adjustable thumb rest and a city scape deco design across the bell. This one in particular is in good shape and is ideal from a player looking to get a nice and punchy American vintage tenor. 
 
Physically the tenor is in solid straight forward condition. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in nice shape. Its bow cap has never been pushed in. All of the original key guards are also present and in very nice condition. There is one ding located near the right hand thumb rest on this saxophone, which we will take out while it is in our shop. This saxophone does include the original neck and Martin double wood hard case. The neck has seen some past repair to the lower brace.
 
This sax came into our shop playing through some leaks on a good set of pads and metal resonators. We are going to go through the horn in our shop and make some sure it is sealing up like a drum. While it is in our shop we will also take out the ding on the back of the body tube. The Martin is a very powerful saxophone and has a tremendous amount of character. This saxophone is ideal for any pro in need of a second horn or any player looking to get into a classic American vintage tenor for a sweet price. 
 
This Martin ships out with its original tenor/soprano double wood hard case!
