Serial # 166k, FINISH: 95% pretty! It looks Original, but it's a very good relacquer, it looks like a potential "Factory Relacquer" because the color looks like the 1950s Martin color. Fresh pads, larger brass resonators. IT HAS A HUGE SOUND! Very responsive and bold! This sax will be ready to play/leave asap. case is an original Martin case (brown, not the orange one), in "OK" condition, missing handle--I'll see what I can do to help that.
