Another great Martin here at WWS. It's a 75% Original Lacquer "The Martin Tenor" purchased from the 2nd owner.  These are super hard to find and always in high demand. The serial numbers match on the Neck and Body #202k dates it to 1957,  Martin's have a great tone that is quickly becoming very well respected in the market--clean tone, resonant low end!, even tone throughout, and better than average ergos for the vintage sax world.

CASE: Original case was in rough-stinky shape... So I will be pairing this sax with a NEW Protec Case XL ($142).

WWS REBUILD: It's getting our personal treatment in a Rebuild ($929) with large flat metal resonators (75%+ sizing, which is larger than Standard) on Tan Prestini Pads and a WWS Premium Upgrade ($299).

We are happy to help you fall in love with this Martin: pretty original lacquer, well bathed during the rebuild, a new case, and a setup that will be able to cross many genres. I encourage you to compare this package with any others for sale.
