This sweet 1964 vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI alto sax was just restored in our repair shop by our senior tech, George Bunk. It is playing up a storm and is priced to move.

 

This alto was relacquered long ago, but there's not much lacquer left on it; it is mostly bare brass. The factory American style engraving is pretty faint in spots on the bell, as seen in the photos. While the tube shows signs of past dent work here and there, it is straight now, and George did a complete restoration. It has premium firm leather pads, oversized TM Custom screwback flat metal resonators, and new material throughout. The keywork feels incredible under your fingers. If you've never played a Mark VI that was adjusted by someone who knows what they're doing, you'll be amazed at how easy and comfortable it can feel. The original neck is included, with the matching serial number stamped in it.

 

This alto definitely feels a little more open than the earlier “5 digit” horns. It has a very free response, a bit brighter and more spread, but without sacrificing the famous Selmer “core” sound. If you like a bit edgier sounding VI, this is the way to go, and with the fresh overhaul, you'll be good to go for a long time to come.
