This is a Buescher "Big B" Aristocrat alto sax made in 1949, in Elkhart, Indiana, USA.
It has been fully stripped, washed and professionally rebuilt with premium calf pads and plays great!
Lovely condition in original dark gold lacquer (about 90% intact).
The Big B's are regarded as being the best of the Aristocrat Series famously used by Duke Ellington's Johnny Hodges!
It sounds amazing with that beautiful warm, sweet Buescher tone - solid intonation and perfectly set up action!
Overall an amazing opportunity to own one of these highly regarded classics.
Comes complete with both a lovely condition vintage "alligator" case and a brand new shaped flight case and of course, our famous 12 month warranty!
BUY VINTAGE WITH CONFIDENCE!
