This horn is keyed to high F#, and has a G# trill key.

This is my personal horn. I bought it from the original owner who has had it since he bought it new in 1958. The gentleman made a number of modifications to the sax which I will get my tech to undo. However, they were unique enough that I thought they should be captured in photos. The most obvious mod is the suede leather strap that was added for the left thumb. The left thumb rest was also moved to the left slightly, so I will get that moved back to its original position when I get the strap removed.

The other really obvious mod is the hook that was added in the strap ring. This too will be removed. I'm not sure why this was added. I can only presume this was done in an effort to save the lacquer from damage by the strap hook.

When the original Lucite "angel wing" key guard needed to be replaced, the owner made his own out of Plexiglas rather than order the replacement metal part that J. Keilwerth offered. The replacement piece, while scratched, is not cracked or damaged in any way. It is made of extremely thick Plexiglas, and will likely last much longer than the the original one ever did. The edges are extremely well finished, and the scallops are really nicely done at the bow end.
