The sax was disassembled, cleaned, rods and linkages were lubricated and all new pads, corks, etc were installed. All the snap in resonators and the Norton springs are there. The horn is very responsive, and is effortless to play.
The original lacquer is in incredible condition with just some light blotches here and there, most noticeable above the thumb hook, and some light scratches around the strap hook (as seen in photos). Included are the original accessories that came with it. The Buescher True Tone mouthpiece, marked TRU-LAY 55/812 M is in very good condition. The case is nice inside and outside. The latch springs pop out as they should, and the interior does not have any odors.
Also included is a ligature, cap, vintage strap, lyre, cork grease and a new Rico #4 reed. This package is a true time capsule, a rare find in this condition, and now ready for some serious use.
