In outstanding condition! Wow, a baritone that wasn't beat up over the last 90+ years!!! The body, keys, and condition are in great shape. This sax deserves to be loved by a caring adult who wants to rock the low end. I say that because there is no high F on this model and, really, baritones needs to stay in the low end anyway. Rebuilt, this baritone will be a looker and your friends will all stare. We can talk about upgrading the case, and also getting rid of the bell brace that is for a sax-stand--it's gotta go too. It's being sold via WWS for a friend, but the sax, rebuild and guarantees will all be like a normal transaction through WWS.
REBUILD: customize it to your wishes. It will be done here at WWS. My recommendation: put some huge Resotech resos on it and it will have some serious bark to the tone.
CASE: The old, original case is bad. (safe for shipping). But I recommend we address this. I can work with you to get a new Protec (sized for Low A required to fit). This can be shipped here before or after work is complete.
