Hi Everyone.I am restoring a goldplate alto. I would like to ask the learned a couple of questions.The body tube is matt gold and the rings on the bell by the neck and base are burnished gold so to is the emblem on the bell. All the keys and cups are lacquer is this correctfor the year.The lifter arm that opens the palm key when you play top F is missing completly just the posts on the tube.Seems strange that it is missing,I have all the original paper work, hand book and guarantee card.It says it is a 120 model with a J finish and serial number can someone help. racer.

Hi Bruce.Thats the one. One of the side key touches also a key cup is showing silver through wear.How good are these saxes compared with a Martin Imperial alto that I have in playing condition, Your thoughts on value,
