HELP, I Want One!

This is a very pretty original lacquer Selmer Paris Mark VI alto saxophone, serial number 112821. In addition to having a lovely original lacquer finish this sax is also quite the player. It takes the air in quick and produces a super sweet sound. For this particular vintage of Mark VI's this one does lean a little on the brighter side of the color spectrum. The key action feels smooth under the fingers and shows off a nice set of original pearls. 
 
This saxophone shows off original lacquer finish with a lovely honey tint and crisp floral engraving. It has some standard cosmetic character for a horn of its vintage but it does not show the history of any serious past repair. The body tube, bow and bell are in nice original contention. Its bow cap and bell flare are also in great shape and have never been pushed in or dented in the past. There are currently 2 minor dings in the bow curve, which will be removed in our repair shop before shipping. There has been zero re-solders on any of the keyguards or posts on the body of this sax. The receiver at the top of the sax has been resoldered at some point, but done expertly well with no large areas of burnt lacquer. The original neck with matching serial number stamp is also with this alto. It is in fantastic condition and has never been pulled down. 
 
This is a super clean and sweet playing Selmer Mark alto. Please stay tuned for more pictures and video.
