Ever wanted to play saxophone like John Coltrane? Tough shit, you can’t. You can, however, own his saxophone.
As The Wire report [via London Jazz], the Yamaha alto saxophone played by Coltrane on his 1966 tour of Japan, provided to him by Yamaha in prototype form, is currently available on Ebay. The sax is one of two that Coltrane’s family are selling to fund the John Coltrane Foundation; aficionados will spot it from the front cover of Coltrane’s Live in Japan set.
And as for the price? The sax will set you back $115,000, but the shipping’s free.
