Johnny Hodges' custom saxophone

Here's an amazing video that shows (in great detail) a custom-made Vito saxophone that belonged to Johnny Hodges of the Duke Ellington band.

This is on a private link on YouTube (you must have the link to find the video), so thank you to saxophone wizard Matt Stohrer for posting the link on Facebook.

Be sure to watch in HD to see all the amazing engraving detail on the horn:


Also some great audio is happening in the background by Hodges. Billy Strayhorn's "Daydream" is especially striking!
