    Default A different Buescher alto.

    This is the first time I recall seeing a Big B engraved saxophone with nickel keys. I've seen older (True Tone) and later (141 models), but never any from this era.

    Has anyone else seen one of these?

    Nope...factory re-do perhaps? maybe for a school band with all nickel keyed saxes?

    Looks like a 323k tenor I serviced about a year ago. Factory nickel and not redone (you can tell by the underside of the keys, angles, etc). Those would always have clear lacquer (optional at the time) and there's not many of them out there.
