Another starter sax with decent ergos, good metal, and a lineage of Keilwerth parts. This sax looks like the old Couf parts (my 1970s pro sax.) Gold lacquer, nickel keys.  I expect it to have a great sound that would rival and new sax due to the Keilwerth link (and my bias towards that sound).

It doesn't have the high F# key, but that's not needed to start. I repurchased this sax from a previous client (note that it worth re-owning). They did play it and lost a few pearls and screws and we will get those all repaired.

CASE: - Yes. Nice original hard case. I am treating the case from some storage odor from not being used for a few years, and I expect it to clean up.

Cosmetic Rating: 6.0 -- complete but with wear and tear marks.

***PC Work (playing condition) pending - misc screws and pad adjustments.
