GRAFTON VINTAGE PLASTIC ALTO #12,xxx, like Charlie Parker Played!!! - SUPER PRICE!!!


The Grafton Plastic alto is one of the most iconic vintage altos.  Most people know of it because of it's white plastic body and the fact that Charlie Parker played one when in England on a date in which they couldn't use his real name due to contract obligations in the US.

These are getting more rare and hard to find every day.  This is only the second one we have seen in our 23 years in business and I doubt we will see many, if any, more!

This one is serial number #12,xxx and it's in very good overall condition.  There is only a minor amount of plastic damage to key guard near the Low C key and the receiver and High F tone hole had some repair work done in that vicinity which is making the High F not seal right now, but I am sure we can get it to work well.  

All original pads, corks and felts with original resonators in the pads as well!  These play great when they are up and running.

I expect this horn will be worth twice what we are asking in about 5 to 10 years.  I would leave it as is and just put it away until a rainy day or, if you like, we will do our best to get it playing well before you receive it.

Don't miss this if you are a serious horn collector!!!
