This is a B-stock (i.e. damaged and/or returned) budget-price Chinese-made saxophone.
Personally I would not go near it (unless you are very good at doing repairs yourself).

the better choice is and will always be to buy a pre-owned saxophone from a reputable seller.

Buying a B stock saxophone that was already cheaper than the money it will take to read a saxophone is false economy.

Get Yoursefl a Jupiter in good playing state and you probably spend as much and have a better saxophone.

Thanks, I'll stay away from it then. If only I had an expert friend in a shop that sells cheap saxes, so he could test one and sell it to me only if it's of acceptable quality...

with all due respect, but you should bring a friend along and not relying on a resident seller’s expertise.

There is an Italian proverb which meaning is that if you ask the water seller whether the water that he sells is cold he will invariably answer that it is as cold as snow!

Try to find private seller, it will be certainly cheaper than a shop or ebayer.

Some Jupiter for no good reason at all are sold for very very little indeed.

If you are a beginner then I recommend getting a teacher to get you started.
The teacher may be able to help you find an instrument.
