New here and need some advice!
I purchased a Buescher Aristocrat Sax from an antique shop recently and was wondering if anybody could let me know if it's worth fixing. The serial is 619334.
It didn't have a neck or mouth piece. There is some green corrosion on the inside and when I took it in for estimated repair it was around $300 to remove the corrosion because it needs some acid bath. Can't remember if he mentioned any other repairs.
I've been told that I don't NEED to remove the corrosion, but I just wanted to be sure. All the flaps seem to work ok, I haven't looked at it in a while so I can't say for sure at this moment.
I've always wanted to play sax and it seemed like a good impulse, especially for $80.Any advice would be appreciate. I know at that price I could probably just buy a new Yamaha YAS-23 or 26, so I'm just wondering what my best route would be.
