Vintage Mark VI Tenor - Includes Saxquest Overhaul
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor saxophone, serial number 147431. These late 1960's vintage tenors typically play with a tighter core sound in comparison the the earlier and more spread sound of the Mark VI's from the late 50's. This one came to us on some very old pads so it is currently awaiting a complete overhaul in the Saxquest shop. The Saxquest professional overhaul includes all new premium leather pads, brown plastic resonators, corks, felts and precise key regulation. Once the overhaul is complete the saxophone also undergoes a series of through play testing and further tweaking to ensure it arrives to you in perfect playing condition. 
The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell flare are all in good condition. The bow cap has never been pushed in and the bell flare has never been pulled down. This saxophone was re-lacquered at some in the past. The floral engraving across the bell region is clear and well defined. There is currently some smallish dings on the sax that will also be taken out as part of the Saxquest overhaul. This saxophone is currently awaiting a pro overhaul in our shop. Once complete we will post some new pictures and a new video.
