Please read entire description and view pics before offerding, thanks! This is a vintage Buescher Aristocrat tenor sax in good playing condition with serial #27106x, which I believe dates the horn to 1935. This is my last vintage tenor sax and I'm selling because I'm a senior citizen and have stopped playing entirely. This was my favorite tenor and I preferred it to my Conn 10M and Buescher 400. It has been the most versatile tenor for my (double) embouchure. It played with ease for me with any mouthpiece. It had the sweet Buescher sound up high and when I needed volume and lows I found it to be a match for those horns with larger bells, plus, I preferred the key action of this one. There are no dents to speak of, only some minor dings in the bottom area. I was a player, not a tech, but I think all the pads are the domed snap-in type. The pads are old but have held well for me. It doesn't seem to have been re-lacquered but I cannot be positive. If it has been re-lacquered it was very long ago, as I've had the horn for three decades and the lacquer was old and darkened even when I purchased it. There exists typical wear on the keys and some minor pitting in places. Please note that the key guards are the older type as opposed to the ribbon type used on later Aristocrat models. The engraving/garland is in good condition and I would guess the lacquer retention to be about 95%. The neck is in good condition with one minor little ding and not much pitting for its vintage. The case is older and a little over sized in height. I think it is the original case but I am not positive. Somebody long ago added belt functionality on the inside to better secure the horn in the case and I've always kept a piece of felt between the horn and the belt when securing it. All three case latches are functional. This sale is for the 48 contiguous states only as shipping will be UPS Ground. No shipping to P.O. boxes. PayPal only. Questions welcome.
