Vintage Buescher Aristocrat Tenor Sax - Series I
Serial # 280xxx
This one is slated to go into the shop, but is being offered here, until work begins, for anyone who may be interested in it, in its current condition. It has been long in disuse and needs a complete repadding.
relacquered finish has much variation in color and surface blemishes throughout- see photos;
the physical body is in very good condition, with a few small dings and two dents - one at a post on the side of the body tube, and a second large one on the side of the bow (see photos); neck is in quite good condition, no repair scars, but there is some noticeable pull down bend;
Buescher snap-ins are intact but the pads are old and need to be replaced;
case is not original and is in very poor condition (suitable for shipping, but needs major repair).
