[QUOTE=reginr;1565148]Saxtek to eliminate your suspicion about my post. Get your A1s, unscrew the e-flat key-guard from the back then turn it the right-side-up then screw it back in, if you do it yourself you will see that it is NOT an impossiblity . That is how I received mine.
Now that you explained it, I guess they could have put the guard on upside down. And they did ship my sax before installing the strap ring (They're sending me one). I know that some of the first batch of saxes were assembled while workers were standing in water from flooding in Bangcock.
