Serial number 351xxx. 60+% Original Lacquer, The Big Bs are famous for a BIG warm sound with rich low notes--resonant low end the fills the room, probably due to some help from the big bell flare. Mid-range gets a little thin but the low notes make up for it. These fit very well in jazz or concert bands. Intonation is pretty good all-round, C# is non-articulated, but my biggest complainant on the model is the lack of pants-guard on the backside. Beyond that, the Big B Baritones have a cult following who seek that fat warm sound.
This sax has a a WWS Rebuild on it. We originally sold it to a local customer who chose to sell it back to us due to their life changes. I will happily tune our pad-work up and send it out playing as good as I remember it.

CASE: It came back with the original case (working, yet poor condition). We can talk about case options for this one.
