I look forward to learning from all of you. I had not played my alto sax for forty some years, but decided to start playing again recently for fun. I found a great teacher and a great sax. But I have my original sax, The Martin, SN 219XXX, that, for some unknown reason, is missing its neck. Any ideas on how to get a replacement would be appreciated. RetroSax

Welcome RetroSax,

An old Martin...nice...a bit of Art Pepper there...

For a replacement neck try "googling" vintage saxes and something should pop up - try Junkdude.com from Pickington, Ohio, the owner Dave Hoskins may be able to help or put you on to sombody perhaps, if he can't.

Happy saxophoning.

Greg S.

Necks are, in general, hard to find. They go missing, get damaged beyond repair. You probably need to find an aftermarket 'upgrade'. You might get one from Phil Barone. And it'll probably have to be fitted by your tech. Necks have a big effect on sound, so shop around. Beware of overpriced guys flogging bling at extortionate prices with sound enhancing weights and the like.
