Re: Relacquering a saxophone...
I'll definitely look into that.
Honestly I could really care about the value of the horn, because I kept the horn specifically because I wanted to play it.
Right now I'm just looking at the options, but relacquering the horn was something that my instructor had mentioned and I really started thinking about it. And before you accuse him of being something that he isn't, he's a very accomplished player, and he studied under Jean-Marie Londeix in Bordeaux... so he isn't just blowing smoke. He also has a lot of experience with restoring horns, and as far as I've been able to tell, his work's really good.
