PSA: Non-B&S Guardala Sax Alert

But it really does look nice. Pics and links to articles here.

The eBay one is made in ROC, not Germany. When you know to look at the bell-to-body brace and the C/Eb key shapes, it's really easy to spot the differences.

Apparently Guardala also some of his saxes post-B&S made by Amati. I have yet to figure out which ones those were. To the best of my knowledge, the horns shown in my article are Asian-made Guardalas and not Amati-made ones.

That said, it doesn't matter if it was made by Amati or by some unknown Asian company in Taiwan or China, if it wasn't made by B&S, it isn't the Guardala horn that people think it is. Period. Full stop.

I'm also not sure if those New York series horns for sale now aren't perhaps counterfeits. Just a thought...
