This baritone saxophone is being sold as is in non-playing condition as there is a key that is broken and will need repair (see pictures). Overall, the instrument is in good condition. There are a few decent dents from the U tube to the body to the bow. Overall, the instrument is in good shape, and it has wire key guards, cut tone holes and the X body brace. The neck has some pull down, but it is not completely folded (see pics). The key that is broken is keeping this from being able to play however from the sound of the pads as you work the keys down the horn it sounds like most are sealing pretty well! Likely once you get it fixed and adjusted it should play well – these Conns are known for taking a lot of abuse and keep on rocking.
