Serial #411,xxx indicates a 1965 manufacture, in Cleveland, Ohio (not Eastlake). Brass bell, Sterling Silver neck, with nickel keys / rods and brass key cups. These magnificent horns are well known for the huge sound and power that they bring to an ensemble, and the horns from this vintage are regarded by most as the finest saxes ever made. This particular instrument is in very good condition. Lacquer is original, and about 85% present, looks very nice, vintage. There are a few dents here and there I will do my best to remove, but the pads and action feel very tight and this horn plays well. It will get our Complete Standard Vintage repad with flat resos + rivet, keywork is nice and tight, no play. Currently has Original case included, in fair stinky shape, i might need to find another one 🙁 --i love those vintage two tone ones.
