This vintage Martin Centennial tenor saxophone is in good condition with 40-45% of the original lacquer. There is medium player wear across the horn. This is a very well-loved horn. There is a patch next to the bottom thumb rest where the player’s thumb would have constantly rubbed against the horn and a couple of key guards have been re-soldered. Please see the pictures for details. The serial number is “140919” making this a 1941 vintage saxophone. The engraving on the bell reads “Martin Centennial Model Elkhart Ind. -U-S-A-” with flowers scrolling all the way down into the bottom bow. The neck does have the matching serial number to the horn making it the original neck. The neck cork is older and may need to be replaced down the road. No mouthpiece or accessories are included. A good used metal neck plug is included. It has the original dual-pack case that is in older used condition. Please note no other instruments are being sold in the case except this Martin Centennial tenor.
