Description:

Gold Plated Buescher True-Tone "Low Pitch" Alto Saxophone in great working order - Circa 1923 - serial number 110144. This horn has a satin gold finish and gold plated keys - all keywork is very tight - clean and well cared for - recently serviced. No dents or scratches - pads are older but fully serviceable. There is a minor solder repair on the octave key on the neck at the hinge tubing. This sax was bought new by my dad in the 1920s - two bands I know he played with are Hal Kemp and Red Nichols.

Includes the original mouthpiece, lyre, neck strap, and a replacement case from 1960.
