Mark VI Tenor – Late Vintage - Repair Man Special
This is an original lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VI Tenor Saxophone, serial number 229515. It was manufactured during the early part of 1974. These later Mark VI's tend to have slightly brighter and more focused sonic characteristics from the earlier models from the early 60's and late 1950's. While this one is not the prettiest in the shop it is in sound condition and has a ton of potential. 
 
As the pictures show best it has been some time since this sax has seen any service work. It does show the history of some dent and solder work, some of the dents still remain. All of the original key work and guards on the horn are original and present. The original neck with the saxophone has also been pulled down in the past. At this point the saxophone is not going to be ready for any playing until it has received a complete overhaul. We would love to do this project but the current turn around time in our shop for major projects like this one is over 2 months at this time. As such we are selling it in as is condition at a drastically reduced price point.
