Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1959
This is a super sweet playing Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor from 1959, serial number 82686. The tenor has a rich free blowing response and is quite a powerful player. In terms of color the it leans on the brighter side. The sonic balance of the sax is outstanding and the projection is exceptional. This particular tenor is a great choice for people wanting to get into a great five digit model with out going into the $10,000 price range. 
 
Physically the saxophone is in solid condition from top to bottom as it currently sits. It was re-lacquered at some point in the past and its current finish shows a typical amount of play wear. The sax also shows some repair since the refinishing as been done. Its bell flare was repaired in the past as well as two of the guard feet to low Eb have been re-soldered. All of the original key work is intact on the horn as well as the key pearls. The key pearls do show a fair amount of wear at this point. This saxophone is with the original neck with matching serial number stamp. The neck is in good physical condition. 
 
Saxquest performed a set-up on this tenor in 2021 and it is still playing in excellent condition. We will go through the sax once more before it ships to ensure it is still in perfect playing condition. 
 
If you are looking to get into a fifties vintage Mark VI at a great price and are not particular about looks this tenor is an ideal purchase.
