HELP, I Want One!

Freshly Overhaul by Saxquest

This is an exquisite 1964 vintage Selmer Mark VI alto sax in gorgeous original lacquer, serial number 117252. This alto looks spectacular and has just been overhauled in the Saxquest repair shop. It is ready to go, and bring years of enjoyment to its next owner.

 

The photos almost don't do this sax justice. It looks incredible, with 99% original lacquer intact. The only wear of note is some scratching on the back side of the bell and bottom bow, from where the horn may rest against the player during play. There's a couple very shallow dings there too, maybe bumping up against a belt buckle or something. No other wear of note, and no prior repairs that I can spot, and that includes no resolders anywhere. The original neck has the matching serial number and has never been pulled down. This is a true American engraved Mark VI, and the cellulose based lacquer has aged to a rich dark color that is beautiful to see in person.

 

This alto came to us on all original pads, so we restored it properly. All work was done in our shop by George Bunk. Using premium firm leather pads and original style brown nylon resonators, it has all new material throughout and has been precisely adjusted. The action is crisp under your fingers and it feels like a brand new horn.

 

If you've been on the hunt for a premium Mark VI alto that will turn heads, this is the one to grab. Finding these horns in this kind of condition is getting increasingly harder to do; you don't want to miss out on such a tremendous alto. Ships in its original Selmer Paris grey zippered case.
