Selmer Paris Super Action 80
 This is a very nice Selmer Paris Super Action 80, serial number 381479. The former owner of the alto played it regularly and kept it professionally serviced in the Saxquest shop. It is in outstanding physical condition and has no history of major repair. The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all super clean original condition. There has never been any re-solders on this sax. All of the key guards and key guard feet are perfect. This saxophone also includes the original neck in outstanding original condition. 
 
The Selmer S80 is a perfect choice of the professional looking to get a pro Selmer with out paying Mark VI money. This alto in particular has a rich playing character with a darker color very rich in overtones. In comparison to the current production SII and SIII models the S80 is noticeably more free blowing and is akin to the lusher palate of the late Mark VI. This is a highly versatile alto with a fantastic balance across its full range. Intonation, control and projection are all exceptional. The key action is nice and compact under the fingers and allows for fluid motion and a very easy play. 
 
This alto is was kept in very good playing condition by the previous owner. To ensure it ships in perfect playing condition it is also awaiting a professional set-up in the Saxquest shop.
