1972 Buffet Super Dynaction Tenor (w/ high F#):  EXCELLENT Original Lacquer is about 98% although there are some scratches (see pics)--Beautiful Speckled Lacquer version! There are no pings, dents, or major scratches to report. one, ONLY one post is dented into the body (C# tube saddle). These compare very favorably to the famed Selmer Mark VI, usually ranked #2.  Known for its rich tone and smooth action it is a well designed heavy horn, it keeps it's adjustment well and is very reliable.  The serial number is 18,3xx, which means it was made in 1972.  the 70's models had a little more edge and some folks prefer them for that trait.  Included is the original Buffet hard case which is still in excellent shape to match (except the loss of the main handle, hmmm)--side handle is intact. It will great a "French Standard" rebuild with flat metal resonators to mimic the original setup and natural cork throughout.
