So this horn came in out of the blue and the customer really didnt want to put a lot in to the sax. It was a family heirloom and they simply wanteed to get it clean and somewhat playable.
After cleaning the horn (really should have taken before photos but oh well), we called the customer in and wanted them to see just how amazing the sax was physically and to make sure that they didnt want to at least get it into the proper playing condition that it deserved. After they saw the cleaned up body, they went ahead and did the right thing and gave us the OK for a proper overhaul.
We did simply a standard overhaul ($600 job) on this one and boy it is a beauty! So we had to simply snap some photos to share with the sax community as this horn is definitely a rarity in this condition.
Take a look, drool & enjoy!
