This is a vintage Buescher "400" tenor sax, serial number 466473. This horn was completely overhauled and restored by Saxquest in 2005. It is playing extremely well.
This tenor is in excellent physical condition. The original lacquer stands at about 90%, and there are no dents or dings to be found anywhere. There is some evidence of some past work in the bottom bow, but this was done professionally leaving no dimples, and the only sign of it is some lacquer wear. All of the pads, with the original Buescher metal snap-in resonators, are sealing perfectly.
The sax has a full warm sound, with nice power and presence. It responds lightning fast, and is a real resonant instrument. The sax still has its original neck with the underslung octave key.
