(On Consignment - WWS Rebuild with Purchase)

Here's the warmth and power combined! Original finish with a beautiful dark look. It will need rebuilt to enjoy but these are some of the best. The neck is the desired # "01".  ALL Snaps present, #01 neck, and limited dings. Unique dull/aging finish that may come off in washing. I'm not sure yet. Broken octave lever (threaded part gone) that will get some attention during the rebuild.

CASE: Currently paired with a non-original case that is an odd fit for left-side bell keys. But it holds the sax and latches fine.
