HELP, I Want One!

Rich Dark Player – Selmer Mark VI 1971
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor sax in silver plate and gold key work, serial number 189963. It has a extremely lush sonic character with quick response and a fairly dark color. Projection and control is also fantastic. This tenor is currently awaiting a professional set-up in the Saxquest shop and will soon be in perfect playing condition. The set-up will include a dissemble and cleaning, replacement of key materials and a fine regulation of the key work. Right now the sax is on a nice set of leather pads and brown plastic resonators. The pads are in good shape and have plenty of life left in them.
The body of the tenor is in excellent physical condition. At some point during the life of the saxophone a previous owner had the body tube silver plated and the key work gold plated. Since the re-finishing work the saxophone does not look like it has received much play time. There is no signs of any major repair or re-solders on the current silver finish. The body tube, bow and bell are all in great shape. The bow cap is perfect and has never been damaged. This saxophone does include the original neck. It is in fantastic physical condition and shows off the gold plated octave key. 
This is a very special tenor. If you are looking for a Mark VI with a killer look and a world class sound you will quickly fall in love with this one.
