SBA 48xxx as rare as it gets. This horn is in 99-100% original US lacquer and Elkhart engraving. It has original resonators and a truly wonderful playing setup with quite new pads etc. It needs nothing and is ready for the gig out of the case.
There are only minor dings and scratches to be found, no repairs that I could find, wonderful responsive neck with original matching number. The pearls are brand-new sharp, the case is old and the zipper does not work but it is sturdy. The response is exceptionally fast and fluid and the sound is very warm and kind of bouncy and expansive while still being focused as SBAs are.
This is a very loud and open feeling SBA, yet definitely not of the later design that feels a bit more like a MK VI, this is not at all like a MK VI. Selmer SBA super action 48xxx tenor saxophone 1952 - YouTube.
