HELP, I Want One!

Mark VI Tenor 1975
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI Tenor saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 205716. As a player the tenor is quite exceptional. It has a warmer core sound with a more focused quality in comparison to the earlier five digit Mark VI tenors. The focused core sound gives the sax an amazing amount for control allowing for ample projection and sonic flexibility. Its key work is also in great shape and feels great under the fingers. 
 
While it is not the prettiest horn in the shop the tenor features the original lacquer finish and the body is in great physical condition. The sax has never seen any major dent work and has received zero re-solders. Its body tube, bow and bell are all in great shape. The bow cap is pristine and has never been dinged or pushed in. The original neck is included with this saxophone, it has never been pulled down. 
 
This tenor came to us on mostly original pads. In order to do it justice we will include our professional overhaul. The overhaul will include a complete disassemble and cleaning as well as removing the small dings on the sax. The tenor will soon feature all new leather Valentino pads, brown plastic resonators and new corks and felts. It ships out in perfect playing condition with the original Selmer wood box case. Once the work is complete we will put up a fresh video and new pictures.
