Your horn was misrepresented and it appears that to get it into playable condition repairs are needed. Some people will tell you that you will spend more money buying and repairing it than the horn is worth. I feel that if and when you get the sax in good shape and you like playing it and therefore keeping it, it doesn’t matter what others think. You’ll Have a great saxophone that YOU enjoy, and sound a lot better than most. Really, $1200 for a good playing Martin ain’t bad.
