HELP, I Want One!

Vintage Mark VI 1974
This is a robust pro player, Selmer Mark VI tenor sax in original lacquer finish, serial number 225986. If you are looking to get into a great playing Mark VI for a killer price you will want to take a close look at this one. 
 
The pictures tell the tenors story very well. It has seen plenty of performances in its day and has received some past solder and dent repair. One notable solder repair was performed to the octave key post. Its bow cap has been slightly pushed in at some point in the past but the condition of the bow is still excellent. This saxophone is with an earlier vintage Mark VI neck with the low octave key saddle. The neck was slightly pulled down at some point but was later corrected and brought back up to its true position. 
 
The tenor came into the shop playing on a good set of leather B-52 pads with brown nylon resonators. Its pads are in good shape but the horn is in need of a good set-up. As such it is currently in line in the Saxquest shop. The set-up will also include a full dissemble, cleaning and replacement of all necessary materials. Once complete the saxophone will be in perfect playing condition. 
 
This tenor takes the air in easy and plays with a fat sound. We very much look forward to playing it more when the work is complete. Ships in perfect playing condition with a Saxquest set-up and wood hard case.
