Fantastic Price on a 60s Vintage Original Lacquer Mark VI

This is a good 1966 vintage Selmer Mark VI alto sax, serial number 133514. This alto is in good original lacquer and comes with a fresh set up from the Saxquest repair shop. It is getting tough to find original lacquer Mark VI's that haven't been abused, and this one checks off all the marks on the list.

 

Physically, this alto is very straight. There is one small dent in the bottom bow, right on the bow cap, which we will straighten out as much as possible, but it is in a tough spot. There are no other dents or previous repairs, including no resoldered joints. The original lacquer shows normal wear for a sax that has been played, mostly on the back side of the bell as seen in the photos. The original neck has never been pulled down, and does have the matching serial number stamped in it.

 

Pads are all in good shape, fitted with original style brown plastics, and the sax will get a fresh cleaning and adjustment before we ship. We'll replace any pads starting to age and all of the key adjustment material, and optimize key heights and spring tensions throughout.

 

This is a great deal on a '66 vintage Mark VI. If it was only a year later, the price would be several thousands more, so this is a great opportunity to pick up a fantastic playing sax without breaking the bank. It is a free blowing, responsive alto that takes your air well, and projection is outstanding. Ships in a good hard case.
