Here's a unbelievably rare and mint example of the Martin Skyline alto in original matte or satin gold plate finish, serial number 118419. The art deco style engraving on the bell features a city skyline with searchlights and blimp overhead. It also shows a bald eagle with beak pointed to the sky. A beautiful look at 1937 Martin craftsmanship.
The physical condition of the sax is in amazing original condition, showing no signs of ever receiving repair. Its bottom bow, bow cap, bell flare and original neck are all in spectacular original condition. The horn is in top notch playing condition and was overhauled in 2012 by Saxquest repair tech Chris Funck.
It plays with colorful warm resonance and takes in the air quickly with outstanding response. Don't let the small bell diameter fool you, this little alto can put out the sound. A terrific player for sure.
