    Presumably stripped for parts to restore another TT. It's hard to believe that anybody is going to pay $100 for it.

    I love this quote:

    "If you are good at restoring old and fabulous instruments, this is for you"

    It looks like it was lit on fire at some point?

    It was bound to happen. Blackwood Joe has started repairing saxophones.

    I played an Selmer bari once that had that discoloration, it had been stored in a barn or something like that and was totally dark brown, not a chip of laquer left, it did a couple of gigs on it with the original pads.
