HELP, I Want One!

This is a gorgeous condition Selmer Paris Reference 54 tenor sax in the traditional matte finish, serial number 631469. This tenor has been extremely well cared for and looks great. It will ship with a fresh adjustment from the Saxquest repair shop, and come to you in tip-top playing condition.


As you can see in the photos, the original lacquer on this tenor is 98% intact, with only minor lacquer wear on the usual touch points and keys, all purely cosmetic from normal use. The sax got a very slight bend in the bell flare in shipping to us, but we'll remove that seamlessly. Only 1 resoldered joint, on one foot of the low Eb keyguard. No other previous repairs, and no prior damage. The original neck has never been pulled down.


Pads are all still in excellent shape, fitted with original factory brown plastic resonators. During our pro set up, we'll replace any that are starting to show age, as well as all of the key adjustment corks and felts. We'll bring the sax back to factory new playing shape, optimizing the action and feel.


This tenor plays with a very warm and full sound. It is definitely on the darker side, but still takes your air well. It excels as a jazz and ballad horn, but can rip if you pair it with the right mouthpiece. Ships in a Selmer Vanguard wood case with case cover.
