I've never played or even seen a Martin in person, but after some quick internet research I am wondering if this sax might be a Martin Committee of some kind. No other pics available at present, and there is apparently no engraving.

That's definitely not a Committee...not even a Martin. It is a Buescher, (or a stencil made by Buescher). Just out of curiosity, what made you think that this horn might be a Martin Committee?

Some pics I had seen (purportedly of Committee) had certain similarities.

Buescher as seen in the G# cluster. Martins had soldered tone holes. Same era as the Committees however.

It is a Buescher, for sure.

The left pinky plateau and neck scream Buescher.

Your version is slightly different (as many stencils were)but it is essentially an Aristocrat.
