I have been offered one of those (silver) and did not know there was a BM model for alto, let alone a Fatboy model. It's not cheap, around 1750 USD. I'm curious it they are that rare and what they will sound like. I remember the BM for tenor I had ten years ago had a fat focused sound with rich partials. Have you ever seen or played one?

It's being offered by a shop with a good reputation. I have just asked them for more information and better pics. This seems in fact to be a BM FB alto, and, yes, it's rarer than rare.

The shop has just sent pictures and a description of the engraving. Serial number is "1637" and the engraving says "FB BMA". The pictures clearly show the typical ridge of a FatBoy mouthpiece and the bite plate made of dental resin. I'm adding a cropped picture of the ridge. Looks legit.
