Buescher Aristocrat Tenor Saxophone (1949)
Buescher Aristocrat Tenor Saxophone. Serial number 331591 dates this saxophone to 1949. This is the earliest "Model 156" I have seen. At the time of posting this horn, we also have a 1949 "Big-B" Aristocrat and the only difference between the two is the engraving. Original lacquer is better than 90%. There are no repairs and just very tiny dings. The pads are in excellent condition and retain the original snap-in resonators. The original case is worn, but is in usable condition. These are great professional quality saxophones and among the best values on the market.
