There is a nice mid-core resonance that mellows out the tone from other modern textures. It still contains the modern punch with the clarity and the metal resonators help that too.
Comes with TWO Necks, silver one for more clarity and ring, the matching body lacquer for a mellower tone. There are some small dings and pings with some dings removed - but it was adult owned and not abused. No major damage to consider.
This is the predecessor to the "Stone" series. Quite honestly, they didn't change a ton between these models and you can get a great sax for the lesser price on this first era. (The next series got precious stone touches, minor cosmetic changes[+matte options], but the silver "Fat" neck did go through changes in bore and underslung design.)

The sax arrived as a trade in on the original factory pads and play well enough that we will only do minor tuneups to the sax. It can be ready to be enjoyed! - PC Work Pending
