Early Mark VII FANTASTIC Condition!
Here we have an early Selmer Mark VII alto saxophone in gold lacquer and silver keys with a serial number of 243595, meaning it must have been manufactured in 1976. This particular era can be considered "early vintage" as it has a smaller key touch for the right-hand Eb key, which got phased out soon after. The body of this horn is in immaculate condition with no dents, dings, and barely any scratches to be seen. The same could be said for the neck, which still retains the signature blue paint on the Selmer insignia and exhibits no pull down.
These horns play with a slightly deeper, more focused sound than the Mark VI. With the high F# this horn is great for well-rounded players looking to perform in intimate ensembles for jazz and classical, while being suitable to perform with louder ensembles in rock, blues, funk, or even salsa bands. 
The original pads and materials on this sax have reached the end of their lifespan and as such this horn needs a full overhaul before it will be playable. Include an overhaul with the purchase of this horn, and you will get Saxquest's 1-year mechanical-repair guarantee to cover any leaks, tweaks, and general wear that appears, ensuring everything settles properly.
