Buescher Baritone 204xxx Silverplate This Eb baritone came from the factory in 1926. It still has wonderful, original silver plate, and a light goldplate wash inside the bell. The body is straight, and it has been maintained in good playing condition. Snap-in resonators are still intact, and the pads are in good condition. Comes with a padded gig bag. On sale! $1700
Conn 12M 245xxx Silverplate This 1931 baritone sax is a fine-playing 12M, and a work of art. It is fully-engraved, from its gold bell to its neck. Portraits include a nude ribbon dancer, a cabin in the woods, and another nude woman dancing on the back of a swan. This 12M has all new silver- and gold-plate, and all the scenes are recreations from portraits done by Conn's great engravers. New flat metal resonator pads seal perfectly on rolled tone holes, and help give a full, dark, and rich tone with great projection. New case included. Affectionately named "Son of Beast", this 12M has a 14M sibling with similar engravings...please check out its big brother bass named "The Beast", below. On sale! $7000

Buescher Low Bb 197xxx Silverplate This is a diamond in the rough! Original silver plate is excellent, with gold-plated bell interior. Body is straight, and horn is in wonderful condition. Original case, neck, mouthpiece, and even the original Guarantee Card are included. Has older white pads with original resonators. The horn plays, but has been stored away for years; you should plan to have it adjusted at the minimum, or repadded completely. Dated to late 1925, this bass has drawn toneholes, and is keyed from low Bb to high Eb. It is located in the Phoenix, AZ area, and will not be shipped. Contact Vintagesax if you are interested. $6,800
Conn 14M 244xxx Silverplate This 1930 Conn bass is a rarity, even without its full-body engraving. "The Beast" is fully-keyed to high F, has rolled tone holes, and a full rebuild which includes custom-made, oversized, flat metal resonator pads and all new finish. Silver plate has a mirror-like finish, and the gold-plated bell interior is stunning! Engraving portraits on this 14M include a nude ribbon dancer, a cabin in the woods, and a nude dancing on the back of a swan. The 14M neck is perfect, and also is engraved. The 14M was Conn's last, and many think best, bass sax. It plays and feels more like a big tenor because if its redesigned bore and modern key action. Comes with a Reunion Blues leather bag. On sale! $14,500
