I recently purchased a Buescher Aristocrat tenor sax for my 14yr old daughter. She wanted an older sax but not too old because of price for one and also, from what we’ve read, the finger action on older ones seem to be harder (or at least different) for someone her age. She has an old sole to her and likes old things. The serial number is 416122. From what I’ve found, it seems this was made around 1965-66. Is this correct? What more can you tell me about it? I only paid $300 for it which I figured wasn’t bad. We are still waiting for it to be delivered but the guy said it is fully adjusted and ready to play. It also comes with a mouth piece (not sure what yet), strap and other brand case. By the way, I also purchased her Yamaha YAS-23 from the same guy. It did need a couple of minor adjustments but it has been great! So we are hoping for the same or better outcome with this one. I had her look over the pictures of it and she said it looked good to her...not just the looks but she was talking about features and placements.
