1940 Vintage Martin Committee II Alto
This is a vintage original lacquer Martin Handcraft alto sax with the “Lion and Crown” engraving, serial number 139792. The alto is physically very clean from top to bottom. It does have a standard amount of cosmetic wear around the finish but it does not have any history of physical repair. There have been zero re-solders and no major dent work. The body tube, bow and bow cap are all in excellent original condition. The original neck is also in great shape and has never been pulled down. This alto does feature the signature Martin beveled tone hones and moveable right hand thumb rest. 
 
These Martin Committee II's are fairly bright and powerful players when they are set-up well. This one  in particular came into our shop recently from a collector who had not played it for a very long time. Right now it is sitting on some very old pads and will need to be completely overhauled before it is ready for any serious playing. Due to the line in our shop right now we are offering it at a premium price in “as is” condition.
