Hey folks,

Got this a number of years ago at an auction hoping to eventually learn to play. Well, 25 or so years later, not so much. Hoping to learn in retirement, which is in 5 years or so. I know this is a stencil of what is most likely a Buescher, and I realize the sax itself may not be from 1914 - I think that is the date for the bell of the horn?

Physically, seems to be in good sha[e, no damaged or missing parts ( small dent in horn bell).

Anyway, I am wondering if this is worth getting fixed up (pads, oiled, cleaning, etc) or when the time comes just rent one and see how it goes. I realize it probably isn't worth much, although it seems it was well used so may have a good sound?

Anyway, opinions would be appreciated. I am cleaning things out of my home and came across this, so figured I'd ask!

thanks!

Al

First, let me say thank you to all who posted and answered my questions those 5 years ago. A number of things happened shortly after I posted, so never got back to you all. Hopefully, you are all around to still thank!

Les - I never did any followup on it, but have no reason to doubt Kurt's analysis. Funny, after I posted it, I put it back away, and now am in process of selling house so it is in an auction. We'll see how it goes.

Still hoping to learn in retirement - although that looks like 2021, not 2020!

Stay healthy all!

Thanks again all!
