A rare, original beauty. It has matching serial number on the neck and minor pings on the back bow. The sax has a beautiful color and caused me to look really hard at the originality. Even with the neck in a slightly different hue than the body, which has a deep hue with more orange in the mix, it has some original pads, and enough original brown the felts prove the originality for me.
The sax is very clean and the photos will support that. To add to that, the case is in fantastic shape to match.
CASE: Original Martin Case in excellent condition. Missing the clarinet insert.
REBUILD: Sax is being sold 'as is' or you can order a rebuild for a discounted addition (save -$200 off the rebuild cost). About 7 pads have been changed from the original at some point (Side C, Bb, low Eb, palm keys...).
