Vintage Selmer Paris 1957
This is an excellent playing original lacquer Selmer Mark VI Tenor, serial number 68664. 
 
If you are looking for a big dark sound and plenty of personality this tenor will be hard to put down.  It has a lush deep resonating sound and ultra crisp response. The tenor is showing off a lovely original lacquer finish with some very clean American floral engraving. For an instrument of its vintage this tenor is in tremendous physical condition with some very standard cosmetic character. The body is in great shape with no history of major repair and zero re-solders. Its bow, bow cap and bell flare are also all in very nice condition.  The original neck with matching serial number stamp is with this tenor. It was very slightly pulled down in the past but has been brought back up to its true position.
 
This tenor was overhauled by Saxquest in 2015 and has been played very sparsely since then and mostly kept in the case as a collectors item. We are going to go through the tenor once again and set-up and spend some time play testing to ensure it arrives in perfect playing condition. Like you would expect from a good Selmer the key action is ultra fluid and allows for a very comfortable feel under the fingers. If you are on the lookout for a dark Mark VI that is a knock out player and a great looker this tenor is going to be very choice.
