I think Juan meant it hasn't been obsessively polished over the years, which could result in excessive wear on the brass and the engraving. Nice horn!

That's a super good looking sax. I'll guess that is was always bare brass. Of course, the cellulose lacquer might have come off while the horn body and keys were having a long soak in a shop's cleaning vat awaiting rebuild. But that's only a guess too. And it may have turned patina brown while left in the case for many years. That might explain the uniformity of the patina. The brown patina on my True Tone is not nearly that uniform.

No matter how it happened, that's a beautiful horn. If I ever loose my OCD and quit polishing my own Big B tenor, I hope it eventually looks like yours. :bluewink:
