SML Strasser Marigaux Lemaire Revision C Tenor Saxophone (1949)
Strasser Marigaux Lemaire (SML) Tenor Saxophone. Serial number 7717 dates this saxophone to 1949. Previous owner purchased it in 1969 and rarely played it. Most likely, it was overhauled and relacquered in 1969 and it looks like a factory overhaul with the premium two-tone finish...lacquer body with nickel keys. Engraving looks great. Cosmetically the saxophone looks great and is in nice condition. The finish is 98%+. There are no dings. The only repair is to the neck receiver. The pads are a mix of older and new, but all are in very good to excellent condition and this tenor is in excellent playing condition. Matching serial number on the neck. Non-original case is in very good condition. Nice quality vintage tenor saxophone in nice condition.
