This is an absolutely pristine condition Selmer Paris Super Action 80 Series II tenor saxophone, serial number 494470. This tenor is in incredible shape, and looks to have been handled with kid gloves over its entire life. There is no major lacquer wear to speak of, and the sax will get a fresh cleaning and adjustment from the Saxquest repair shop before shipping.
As you can see in the photos, this tenor is stunning. The black lacquer is 99% intact with no wear that I can see. There's some mild finish wear on a couple key touches, on the gold lacquered keys, but this horn has obviously been extremely well cared for. There are no dents or previous repairs anywhere, and that includes the original neck. Pads are still in excellent shape with the original metal resonators, and have lots of life left in them. We're going to do our full pro set up on the horn before it ships, where we'll take it apart, clean it, and replace any pads starting to age, as well as all of the key adjustment corks and felts. We'll get this sax playing better than the day it left the factory.
Sure, this tenor has a look that will turn heads, but it has to play too, and it doesn't disappoint in that department. Its sound is dark and full, with a lot of body, and offers the player excellent control. With its warm and focused tone, it excels as a classical instrument and will slot in perfectly in the concert band setting, but with the right mouthpiece, it can do jazz just as easily, as long as you like a dark sound! Ships in its original wood Selmer Vanguard case, with leather case cover.
