Retrofret Stock # 8033. Grafton Plastic Model Alto Saxophone, c. 1966, made in England, serial # 13062, White finish, Plastic, black soft shell case. This Grafton is one of the later ones distributed by Dallas co. It's in excellent playable condition and includes a nice soft case. No mouthpiece or reeds are included. Some history on the company: the Grafton saxophone was an injection molded, cream-colored acrylic plastic alto saxophone with metal keys, manufactured in London, England by the Grafton company, and later by "John E. Dallas & Sons Ltd". Only Grafton altos were ever made, due to the challenges in making larger models (i.e. the tenor) with 1950s plastic technology. Production commenced in 1950 and ended after approximately 10 years. However, a few last examples were assembled from residual parts circa 1967. All tools, machinery, and jigs required to manufacture the Grafton were sold for scrap and subsequently destroyed in 1968. Excellent condition with no cracks in any of the plastic parts. Metal components retain 99% of their finish and are also in excellent condition with little to no corrosion. Excellent Condition.
