These are intricately-hand-painted saxophones from Taiwan. "We invite you to come into the fantasia world for the saxophone with Art. Create your art form with 'Greatmind Saxophone.'" I didn't get any close-up shots so I sent the company an email asking them if they had any and they didn't respond. Dude, I'm from Time Magazine ... perhaps you've heard of us?
