This is why you "Go Antiquing" *shudder* in small cities and towns. Morris, IL may have stuff that only matters in Chicago anymore, and if Chicago lets them keep it, Morris is liable to turn it into something cheesy and fake-useful.

[] . . . .something cheesy and fake-useful.
Funny about that. Saxophones are lovely but saxophone lamps are just foolish, silly looking kitsch. Maybe a soprano wouldn't look so dumb, but still. Very serious aesthetic form vs. function issues, there.

The sad part is that there are places where a kitschy lamp is both more useful and more esthetically pleasing than a saxophone.

Hmmm. Well, that sound like a tactical or deployment issue. Where, say, the form is "saxophone" but the function turns out to be more like, say, crowd control? Or artillery maybe?

I was thinking of places out of the way enough that the only culture is mass-market. If you think "music" needs the word "country" in front of it to be worth a crap, a saxophone IS more useful as a lamp to you.

Well, the good news is that it probably carries a greater value as a lamp than as a sax. An early TT C-mel doesn't bring much -- even in playing condition.
