HELP, I Want One!

Mark VII – High F#
This is a Selmer Paris Mark VII alto saxophone from the late 1970's, serial number 285968. These Mark VII's showcase larger key work then the earlier Mark VI models and are very popular among players who have slightly larger fingers. This one in particular has a dark and very rich sonic timbre. It most definitely has a deep focused quality in it response. The Mark VII is a top shelf choice if you are looking to get a professional Selmer Paris with out spending Mark VI money. 
While it is not the prettiest alto we have in the shop at the moment it is physically in outstanding condition with no history of major repair. The factory original lacquer is in great shape as well.  The body tube, bow, bow cap, bell and bell flare are all in nice original condition.  This saxophone has received no re-solders in the past. The original neck is with this saxophone. It is in outstanding condition and has never been pulled down.
This sax came into our shop on the original pads and factory set-up. As such it is currently awaiting a professional overhaul in our shop. Once complete the alto will be in perfect playing condition. The Saxquest overhaul will include all new Valentino leather pads, brown plastic resonators, corks, felts and precise key regulation. This Mark VII will ship in tip top perfect playing condition with the original case.
