Modele 42 Alto
Serial #: 13613
Finish: Silver plated
This sax was the first that I’ve come across of this model number. It appears to have the same type of key guards and posts that attach them, as the late-model Super Artistes. It also has the nail file G# key that was common on Super Artistes.
If I had to guess when this sax was made, I would say it was around the time of the late-model Super Artiste saxophones.
Be sure to check the Pierret Gallery on Bassic Sax Pix. All new Artiste photos I came across have been uploaded to there.
