This sax still has its original lacquer, original gold plated Norton springs, original brown rollers, and even retains some of the original snap-in resonators. The castle engraving is a work of art and still looks beautiful. It was just tuned up (September 2019) and plays well on a mix of old and newer pads (see video below). All keys and rollers move freely.The pads take moderate pressure to seal so if you're picky you'll want to plan on getting a new pad set installed. This is a vintage instrument and shows normal signs of use like scratches, lacquer wear, patina, small nicks and dings, etc. A few dents appear to have been removed and it's very straight overall. The neck that the owner used for decades is a replacement neck made for the next generation Buescher 400 and it matches, fits, functions, and sounds great on the horn. Comes with an aftermarket case that fits and works great. Buescher 400 TH&C demo - YouTube. Please feel free to ask any questions you have about this sax and I'll be happy to answer.
