This is a "project horn", but it is complete. Pads are more recent, and you may only need to replace the worst offenders, but I think its safe to assume the horn needs a complete overhaul plus it will need the neck tightening screw piece soldered back on. You can tell the cork on the neck was replaced not too long ago. This horn doesn't seem like it would take a lot of work to get in top playing condition.Just normal overhaul, pads, and adjustments. From the looks of the finish on the palm keys and the crisp edges on the pearls, this horn does not appear to have been play very much.
There is also almost zero wear on the case, so that is a pretty clear indicator that this horn just never saw much use. There are some spidered cracks in the plastic keyguard that I see on most of these. Shows some normal tarnish and very minor finish wear, but the finish is actually in excellent condition. This horn should polish up beautifully! The item "Vintage 1957 Keilwerth New King Alto Saxophone Silver JK Germany sax angel wing" is in sale since Wednesday, January 23, 2019.
