This is a beautiful Top Hat and Cain Buescher 400 alto saxophone, serial number 333139. The finish on this horn is in fantastic shape showing very modest play wear for a horn its age. Its engraving around the bell is in pristine shape and is extremely well defined with out tarnish or acid-bleed around the cut. This horn still has the original Buescher snap resonators, amber rollers and gold plate Norton springs. It was overhauled by Chris Funck at Saxquest in 2011 and put into top playing condition.
This instrument's body is in pristine physical condition showing no major wear and one small re-solder. The bottom bow, body tube and bell flair are all in near perfect condition showing no signs of major damage.
400's are widely viewed as the best of the best when it comes to Bueschers. If you're looking for a great playing American vintage saxophone you'll definitely want to check out a Buescher 400 of this vintage!!
