A few areas have some heavier wear on the back of the saxophone near the serial number and a few spots of lacquer wear on the back of the bell. Please see the photos for more details. It has just come from the shop where it was cleaned, adjusted and repadded so it doesn’t just look great, it plays wonderfully. There are a few little dings in the bow but there is no evidence of any major repairs.
