Selmer S80 Series II
This is a very sweet player! Selmer Super Action 80 Series II alto sax in original gold lacquer, serial number 414141. The SII has long been one of the most successful and highest selling saxophones. They are well known for precise pitch, balanced timbre, control, projection, ergonomics and versatility in sonic coloration. This one has a particularly rich response and is on the darker side of things regarding the color of sound. 
 
While it is definitely not a pretty saxophone the physical body of the sax is in great shape. There is no history major repair to the body and no re-solders. The body tube, bow, bell and original neck are all in very nice condition. Its body does show a notable amount of acid bleed which is unfortunately very common among the Selmer altos of this vintage. Acid bleed is the process of moisture coming up through the lacquer finish. This is only cosmetic and has no real effect to the playability of the sax. 
 
The SII came into our store on an older set-up and it had been quite some time since it was serviced. As such it is currently awaiting a professional set-up in our shop. This will include a complete dissemble and cleaning. All of the materials will be replaced along with any needed pads. The SII ships in perfect playing condition. Once the work is complete in the shop we will post new pictures. 
 
If you are hunting for a pro alto for use in any musical settings there is no choice better then the SII. The Saxquest staff found this alto in particular to be a highly exceptional example of the Selmer Super Action 80 Series. Do not miss out on this one!
