A silver restoration from WWS.
(On Consignment--will play great after my PC tune up) A WWS rebuild in 2007 by Sarge (when he was at his peak!) and it didn't get much playing time on the pads. This was a SILVER RESTORATION sax. Serial  number 163,xxx, numbers match on the neck and body. I really want to keep this one for normal Martin reasons BUT also because of the sentimental Sarge value. It has tan pads and larger plastic resos...aka a Selmer Style rebuild. It comes in a vintage, non-martin case that is not that attractive but works for storage, gig use, and shipping. The thumb rest is a replacement before the restoration, and I already pulled the dent that was in the photos. (waiting for Tune Up still, included in the price). Value all this, and the gorgeous beauty that she still is.
