Buescher The Buescher True Tone Silver Bass Saxophone Serial #37187
Additional Information: This is a great vintage bass saxophone! It is in really good shape overall as you can see from pictures there is a patch on the U-Tube and several re-solders throughout the horn from key guards to the bell to body brace. It has split bell keys and wire key guards. There are some dents and dings throughout the horn as one would expect from an instrument this size. Nothing has been crushed. The left hand pinkie keys have the mother of pearl G# key. All in all this is a great horn! It does play but as anyone who knows bass saxophones is aware when this ships to you it will very likely need a trip to the shop for a quick adjustment due to the sheer size of the instrument.
