HELP, I Want One!

High F# - Silver Plated Keys
This is a very cool and rather rare Selmer Paris Mark VI alto, serial number 112230. The alto shows off all original gold lacquer and silver plated key work. An alto like this would have originally been a special order item. It does feature key work to high F# which was also a special order feature. The alto has been meticulously looked after over the years and is in pristine physical condition. It shows no history of any major repair. The body tube, bow, bow cap are all in original condition as is the bell and original neck. This saxophone has no history of any past repair and has received zero re-solders. 
The alto recently received a full professional overhaul from George Bunk in the Saxquest shop. It features all new corks, felts, leather Valentino pads and brown plastic resonators. The alto is in perfect playing condition and ships with the original European wood hard case. This saxophone is keyed to high F#. 
This is an absolutely gorgeous playing Mark VI. It is easily one of the darker playing Mark VI's we have had in the shop in some time. The core sound of the saxophone has a nice focused heart which allows for plenty of control and a dark sonic response. Its key work is ultra fluid and smooth under the fingers allowing for an easy play and great feel. If you are looking for a versatile Mark VI alto that is a cut above the rest you will not want to miss out on this unique item.
