Silver Plate Mark VI Alto - 1973
This is an original silver plate Selmer Paris Mark VI alto saxophone, serial number 207953. These late vintage Mark VI altos are ideal for the modern pro looking for a versatile horn. This one showcases excellent response with crystal clear projection. It is slightly on the darker side regarding color. This particular sax has a much deeper focus to its core sound in comparison to the earlier vintage models from the early 1960's.
The sax is in great shape from top to bottom regarding the overall condition of the body tube, bow, bow cap and bell. The bell flare was slightly pulled down in the past, this will be corrected while the saxophone is in our shop. Its original silver plate finish shows a normal amount of cosmetic character. There is some light scratching around the body from past play but nothing out of the ordinary. The sax currently has a few smaller dings which will be cleaned up while it is in our shop. There is one re-solder to the top foot of the low Eb key guard. At some point in the past some replaced the octave key touch key. (picture 12&22 ) They did a very good job replacing it and lining it up with the tilting rocker keys, this is not something most people will notice. This sax includes the original neck in similar cosmetic condition to the body of the sax. The neck has never been pulled down. 
In order to keep the final price of the saxophone to a premium we are going to do minimal adjustment to this saxophone and not a complete set-up. The sax came in playing very nicely on an older set up with high quality leather pads and metal resonators. If you are looking to get into a versatile player in a silver finish you will not want to miss out on this Mark VI alto. Please take a look at the pictures and let us know if you have any questions. 
Ships in an older contoured protec soft case.
