Vitnage Mark VI Tenor - Includes Saxquesty Overhaul
This is a vintage Selmer Paris Mark VI tenor sax in original lacquer, serial number 144923. If you are looking to get into a sweet playing original lacquer tenor this one is a perfect choice. It came into our shop sporting original lacquer and neck with an pretty old set of pads. As such it is currently awaiting a professional overhaul in the Saxquest shop. The Saxquest pro overhaul will include all new Pisoni leather pads, resonators, corks, felts and a precise regulation of the key work.
 
The physical body of the sax is in great shape showing some standard cosmetic character often seen on horns of this vintage. Its body tube, bow, bell, bell flare and bow cap are all in excellent original condition. There is no history of any major past repair. There is currently a few small dings on the sax which we will remove in the shop during the overhaul. We will also do a solder repair and clean up around the top guard foot of the low Eb key guard. This saxophone does include the original neck in good condition.  It was previously pulled down but was later corrected back to its true position. 
 
This tenor has a super quick and crisp response to air flow and a ultra positive feel under the fingers. In terms of color the tenor does lean a little on the brighter side. If you are looking for a VI with a little bit more modern edge to it this one would be a great choice. Tenor ships out in perfect playing condition with case.
