For sale is a gorgeous Buescher 400 Top Hat & Cane tenor saxophone with its original matching case.
This horn is an extremely early prime era Buescher 400 serial #309xxx, which its factory neck! These early ones dont pop up often and are highly coveted.
This horn has glorious original factory lacquer and ornate factory engravings featuring the Top Hat & Cane itself as well the full engraving of the castle on the cliff side over looking the water with a sail boat!
This horn is sitting on its factory pads and is going to require a full pad job and overhaul to be a fully functional saxophone.
This sax is being sold as not working and has its fair share of scratches, knicks, dings, dents, fleabites, metal wear, engraving wear, patina, repair marks etc.
The case is the proper matching factory case, but its highly used not in the best shape. Even as is still worth a pretty penny.
These early Buescher 400 TH&C tenors are extremely rare and just dont come around these days. Most times these horns pop up they are either relaq's, or missing a neck or, some kind of horrific trauma.
