History : the sax was imported from the USA in 2018. It was sold by it´s second owner, a former 87-years old semi-pro musician who played it from time to time in the Chicago jazz´scene in the ´60s and ´70s. He bought it from a retired jazz musician in 1961. He took great care of his saxes and had them checked and adjusted every 2 year. Last time it was played was probably in 2001, when he stopped playing alto saxophone. He´s still playing the clarinet from time to time these days. Respect.......

Remarks : The sax is in excellent condition, with no dents or damage. All lock screws provided. No rust marks. Silver plating is in excellent condition, with only very light wear on the touch points. The previous owner had the original thumb rest replaced by a modern one. The neck is in perfect condition also, with fully functional microtuner mechanism.
