Gretsch Bari Saxophone

Hi. I have a Bari Saxophone with the Gretsch name engraved on the bell and under that is engraved Commander Chicago, Brooklyn, U.S.A. I was woundering what the year it was made and what it's worth. The serial number is #12640. You can e-mail me at or i'll just check on the page if you know anything. Thanks

Gretsch didn't make saxes, they were stencils, made by Buescher, Conn and possibly Martin. They are quite rare but well regarded. Any valuation is simply a guess until someone makes an offer for a specific amount and the seller accepts it. I paid $250 for a tenor in good condition - I'd expect to pay more for a bari.
