HELP, I Want One!

Selmer SIII Tenor – No High F#
This is a Selmer Paris Series III tenor saxophone, serial number 569270. The SIII is a top choice for some of the worlds finest saxophone players. This one has been professionally played and maintained over the years. The previous owner had the finish from the body stripped but left the lacquer on the key work. The raw brass body gives the sax a more open and organic response. This saxophone is noticeably more free blowing then the standard gold lacquer SIII. The high F# key has also been removed from the saxophone to further open the sound up. 
There has been a decent amount of play time put on the instrument since the lacquer was removed but it is physically in ultra solid condition. There is no history of any major dent repair. The body tube, bow, bow cap and neck are all in terrific original condition. This saxophone includes a very nice SIII brass copper neck in excellent condition. The neck has never been pulled down. 
This saxophone is playing up a storm on its current leather pads and metal resonators. The pads are in nice condition and have a lot of life left in them. To ensure the saxophone arrives in perfect playing condition it will also be checked out in the shop before it ships. The last owner did have a number of custom home brew key modifications and risers added to this saxophone. Those will be removed in the shop before the saxophone ships. This also includes the stones attached to the neck. 
This saxophone ships in a contoured protec Propac case.
