Selmer SII Tenor Sax – High F#
 This is a very pretty Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II tenor saxophone in gold lacquer, serial number 517160. The tenor is in great shape and was very well cared for by the previous owner. It looks absolutely fantastic from top to bottom. There is no history of past repair on the tenor and it has received no re-solders. The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in great original condition. The original neck is with the saxophone and is physically perfect. This tenor shows just a few light surface scratches here and there but nothing serious. There is also a spot of cosmetic wear to the lacquer near the bow cap. 
The Series II has long been a go to instrument for some of the worlds leading professional saxophonist. This one in particular is a hands down incredible player. It has a lush focused dark sonic character. The sax takes the air in quick and has a controlled response which allows for a lot of versatility. Intonation and projection are both absolutely exceptional on the saxophone.  
Classical players love the SII for its focused core sound and precise intonation. It is also very popular among any jazz tenor players who seek a dark sound and something that has an incredibly easy control factor in the altissimo register. This SII came to us as a tremendous player. All of the pads are in great shape and have a ton of life left in them. To ensure the saxophone ships in perfect playing condition it is currently awaiting a professional set up in the Saxquest shop and ships in perfect playing condition with the original wood Selmer hard case. 
A new Selmer SII is getting to be super expensive so this is a great opportunity to get into one lightly played for a stunning low price. Don't miss out!
