If the laquer on a sax starts to come off does it affect the sound or playability?

nope, but it means you have to clean it more often to prevent the metal from oxidizing.

it causes the metal to discolor and corrode, it shouldn't really affect the playability or sound but it doesn't look very nice usually.

i have never touched a saxophone in my life. so i dont actually know much about it but considering that the saxophone is made out of the brass itself, oxidation will affect the performance of the parts perhaps?
