One of the iconic models that is well loved. This particular sax was played enough, and loved enough that someone felt the need to alter the finish in its history. "Affordable Music Man" or a "Silver Restoration Candidate"! That means that we are looking at a sax that could be estimated at $2,500 - 4,500 based on the many options.
Serial #218k. There were also some bumps and repairs along the way - hey, at least she got played and repaired for the sake of music. The finish is a type of clear coat that gives a clouded look, like a matte brass look right now. It started growing on me in person.
CASE: It arrived in a vintage, brown case that will likely need to be upgraded due to wear, But it currently holds the sax just fine.
