This is a used vintage Martin Handcraft alto saxophone. The serial number 48009 indicates it was built in approximately 1924. It is being sold AS IS for parts or repair. The instrument is silver plated with a gold washed bell interior. The plating is tarnished and needs cleaned/polished but is in very good condition with very little plating loss. Includes the original neck with matching serial number. Features soldered toneholes, all keywork and rollers are intact and move freely.
The instrument would need to be completely repadded and mechanically overhauled to be playable. There are minor dents throughout.
Includes a hardshell case (case handle is missing) and a Conn Standard Steelay 4 mouthpiece with metal "A" ligature and metal cap.
