Another Buescher New Aristocrat alto saxophone has been added to the collection. This one is very special: this sax with serial number 2671xx has the original lacquer and the rare neck with number '3'. This is almost identical to the sax played by Sigurd Rascher, the famous saxophone soloist. He played on a gold-plated one with serial number from the same range ... Extremely rare, and also in very good original condition. Gold-plated Norton springs, Snap-in pads, original protective cap, lyre and original case: all complete. The sax was overhauled by the previous owner (professional player) in 2013, and had a  check-up in July 2019. A real asset to my collection!
