HELP, I Want One!

Late Vintage Mark VI Tenor
This is a later vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor saxophone in original lacquer, serial number 213282. Saxquest has had a number of late vintage Mark VI's in the shop over the years and they are always a great choice if you looking to get into a vintage Selmer with out breaking the bank. The later vintage VI's are slightly more focused then the earlier models while also showcasing the same powerful free blowing voice Selmer is known for. With a more focused core sound the timbre stays very balanced from end to end and lends itself to being very consistent. 
This one in particular is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional service and set-up. The work will include a complete dissemble and cleaning. Once this is complete our tech will go through the horn top to bottom and replace all of the needed cork and felt materials and precisely regulate all of the key work. Once complete the sax will be in perfect playing condition. The sax will be set-up on the current set of leather pads and brown plastic resonators. These pads are in great shape and have a ton of life left in them. 
Physically this tenor is in great shape for its vintage showing some history of repair. There has been some re-solders to some of the key guard feet. The body tube, bow and bell are all in good shape. Its bow cap is in very good condition as well and has never been pushed in. This saxophone does include the original neck. The neck is in good shape but was very slightly pulled down in the past but will be brought back up to its true position in our shop as part of the set-up work we are doing. 
If you are looking to get into a great Mark VI and do not mind a little built in cosmetic character this tenor is perfect. It ships out in perfect playing condition.
