Burnished gold plate (aka: shiny) with some minor wear on the touch points. I honestly don't have much to add to this one... It's a Buescher TT series II, in GOLD, with good pads, and a nice case. It has steel needle springs everywhere except two(C#1 & G), a G# trill, an Eb trill. The only negative mark to mention is the replacement neck screw and the G# pearl button, but that is standard on a series II. There are a few dings, pings, and small dents on the bow.
Neck has no serial number (not the 1, 2, o1...). This model has a great tubby-warmth to the sound --Sigard Rascher made this one famous! They have a tone that is uniquely 'Buescher' for early vintage saxes--almost woody.
PADS: Sax has newer pads with plastic resos. These have lots of life left are in great condition. All pad work was done professionally elsewhere.
CASE: yes, older Protec in good, functional condition. Minor exterior stains just to mention.
This beautiful, burnished gold plate sax is waiting for a new home. Will it be yours?
