me too...I'm guessing that the seller is not a sax player.

I suspect that the upper octave was somewhat challenging !

I think it might have an air leak...

I think he may also be locationally challenged - this same instrument is on Gumtree in Bournemouth, Brighto (sic), London and Belfast, and is also listed in Birminghan (sic) as a saxaphone.

No tell-tale white gloves (visible), though...

Maybe the seller sees geography as he sees saxaphone assembling. He doesn't really know where he is: England is in Londonshire.

Bit worrying about teh white gloves - do you think they're wedged firmly in the bell? Or maybe the seller found a use for them - washing the dishes, maybe.

;} we could try to take the charitable view ?!?! ;}

and say that he is selling this on behalf of someone else, a friend who is IT illiterate, maybe, just as he is Saxophone illiterate :w00t:

It could be a genuine nearly new instrument and therefore it could be a bargain ?

Now that I looked better at the picture, he/she kept the end plug in order to accommodate the neck. maybe the gloves are inside the neck to hold the mouthpiece in place.

Not only does the seller not know where they come from but their maths is not much better either the Birmingham listing is for £3400
