We purchased this saxophone for the purpose to re-sale. We do not know the history of this saxophone. We believe this saxophone was custom made. We do not know by whom. The 2nd bell of the double saxophone is a King 615. We believe the other part of the saxophone is a Conn Shooting Star. The "Conn" part of the logo is gone but the stars match.

There are numerous scratches/nicks/scuff marks on the saxophone body and neck. These are very noticeable. There is heavy wear on the finish of the keys and saxophone body. This is very noticeable. There is visible corrosion on the keys and body. There are dark spots of discoloration on the saxophone body.

There are visible scratches/scuff marks on the outside case. There are some small noticeable chips in the paint on the outside of the case. Inside lining has wear from previous use.
