I think the point is that vintage saxes have all the keys in a straight line (obviously not palm keys, etc.). Selmers have them off set so that the lower stack i a little to the right. Most modern makes are Selmer copies so the keys are offset. Does that apply also to B&S?

Yes, it sure does...

... that's a very clear answer; thanks. I play vintage because of this offset; the RH keys - for me - are too far round on the right. Few others appear to think the same, though.
