All student saxes come with a case, and a mouthpiece(if not photoed). I'll see if I can help with any other accessories too.
This will be a great sax for a beginner, step up and/or can do pep/marching or whatever. They really are a quality build that can meet your needs. It has high F# and the warm, bronze-brass body tubing - you can see the two-tone color. This sax has some past repair work to the bell lip and a dent on the bottom bow with a ding in the back tube, and one replacement guard on the Eb. Pads are a mix of originals and some that were changed by a past owner. HUGE bell flare on this model! (i love it)
This can be found at an online music store listed for $1,275 New.
CASE: Yes - An original Selmer Liberty hard case. It is rectangle with a wrap-exterior; zippered case with internal top blanket design (like vintage Couf's pro saxes).
Liberty Alto Sax (LAS) model 501 is a different ergo feel than the AS500, or like, series. It is like the La Voix (AS 220) and La Voix II, which I have had and done gigs with.
From the SELMER product description from Amazon.com:
"This instrument is actually a Selmer AS-220 La Voix alto saxophone made with a different stamp as part of a private labeling for Music and Arts. The Selmer Liberty is designed with the advancing player in mind and features the same ergonomic key-work that made Selmer saxophones famous. Solid bronze body construction warms and darkens the sound and the yellow lacquer keys and Silver Plate body and bell looks really sharp. These instruments sound good, feel good and represent a terrific value."
Cosmetic Rating: 6.0 - some years of use scratches.
***Play Condition work: pending. It will receive a few new pads & corks, oils and adjustments throughout. I'm not planning to purchase the replacement Eb guard at this time, as that can be added later at your cost.
