Equipped with High F#, beautiful original lacquer, S# 90,xxx, matching neck, nice late era Superba 1, these are noted for a very big, warm sound, that is full of harmonics and body.  they are tone machines with very good intonation.  Made about 1985, these are still fantastic saxes through their decades of creation... and finish is very good, perhaps 85%, with the usual wear and scratching.  Body is very straight, no major damage. One large dent on the backside bow I burnished out, and ping in the bell side. original "couf" case in fantastic condition with a cool inner fabric wrap--super cool! REBUILD: I'm still deciding what to do on this baby, but we'll have to talk Resonators... The WWS Vintage Standard would include JK-style, domed seamless metal resos and natural cork throughout. Let's talk about how to set this up for you!
