Here is Martin Centennial Model alto sax, serial number 137139. This horn features some really nice engraving on the bell, reaching down onto the bottom bow, and comes with a new full pad job.
The horn is extremely nice physically, with just a couple minor pencil-point pings in the bottom bow area but no major dents to be found anywhere. A past bend in the bell flare was expertly addressed, leaving it looking fantastic. The alto has no resolder work anywhere.
The sax has recently received a new, full pad job, using brown plastic resonators. While this instrument came to us with the job already done, it doesn’t look like it has seen any playing on the new pads. It is playing great, so we left it alone!This is pretty unique instrument in excellent shape. Don’t wait on this one!
