    Looks like a beautiful "The Martin". This one is in very nice original lacquer. It's totally worth restoring. Contact us at Saxquest if you're interested in selling or having it restored.

      I'm certainly open to offers! I currently have it at a local place to go over it to get it playing correctly. It certainly won't require much work as ita truly a closet classic And has been well taken care of! I sell quite a bit on eBay and expect to list this as soon as I have it where it needs to be!

      thanks for your interest!

    You should give saxquest a shot at it since you are using their forum. You can also list here. Why leave money on the table by selling on ebay and paying their fees. Sell to those that appreciate it. At least listen to the offer. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

      I was unaware that saxquest.com was affiliated with saxophone.org! Anyone is welcome to make a realistic offer on it! It's in Beautiful condition! And I have not agreed to allow the local shop to go over it yet, so I can cease any work if you'd rather work on it yourself!

      Additionally , I'm sure those that are willing to pay 1500$+ on eBay would certainly appreciate it!
