HELP, I Want One!

Selmer Super Action 80
This is a very pretty Selmer Paris Super Action 80 tenor saxophone in original gold lacquer, serial number 319495. These saxophones are commonly called the Series I and came out directly after the Selmer Mark VII model. The SI features a slightly tighter focused sound then the Mark VI models from the late 50's and 60's. But they are also noticeably more open and free blowing if you are directly comparing them to the most recent Jubilee Series.  
The body of this saxophone is about as pretty and as clean as it gets. It shows some ultra light cosmetic character (light scratches) but has no history of repair and has received absolutely no re-solders. The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in exceptional original condition. It includes the original Super Action 80 neck in perfect condition.  This saxophone came into our shop still on the original pads and factory felts. As the pads are quite past their prime it is currently in line for a overhaul in the Saxquest shop. Our professional overhaul will include a complete disassemble, cleaning, precise key fitting and set-up of the key work. Once complete the sax will be in perfect playing condition with a new set of Valentino leather pads, metal domed resonators, new corks and new felts. 
Very rarely do we still get in Selmer saxophones in such good physical condition. This one looks like it most likely spend most of its life in the case not being played. If you are looking to get into a versatile pro horn this is a fabulous way to go. It is also an ideal choice if you are looking for an alternative to buying a brand new Selmer tenor. 
Ships out in perfect playing condition with a Saxquest professional re-pad in a protec case.
