For sale is a real deal 5 digit Selmer Mark VI Tenor saxophone in glorious original lacquer!!!
This is a very valuable and special example Selmer serial #98,xxx Mark VI tenor with the very desirable matching case!
These days it has become near impossible to locate these real deal original laq 5 digit Tenors. There really weren't many of these horns ever made and most are swept away into players and collectors hands never to leave the family dynasty!
In the past 1 or 2 years it become nearly impossible to find these like it used to be.
More times then none when you find these 5 digits its so so common for there to be a horrific problem with the neck, or some kind of massive missive part or trauma.. Either a pickup is installed, or some kind of patch, horrible trauma, or any other number of weird things that happen to these horns.
This neck has no patches, pickups, or weird trauma and is just a proper legit 5 digit neck just as should be! Please take a look at the pictures the neck does show lacquer wear, or dried spit stains, some kind of patina that im unsure wheres it from.
The neck on this saxophone has no serial number, just as it should. This saxophone was 100% built, assembled, engraved and finished at the Selmer Paris factory. The only saxophones that ever had serial numbers on the necks were the horns sent in pieces to the US and finished and built in the US.
Im selling this saxophone as not working, in the not working category. The horn was overhauled at one point and has all its adjustment material and corks and such however horn is extremely leaky all over, and is not sealing. The saxophone will need a full on setup to make it a properly playing horn. Low Bb and B are not even fully sealing.
Although this saxophone is extremely rare and valuable this saxophone is still an antique with its fair share of heavy patina, scratches, knicks, dings, dents, fleabites, repair marks, laq wear, metal wear of red colors, and other anomalies associated with such an old antique. There is a number such as a phone number hand scratched into the sax directly above the serial number.
Once again there are some numbers hand engraved into the sax directly above the serial number on the back tube. Please refer to picture #12 for this, as well there are many close ups of this in the pictures under the description.
This saxophones comes with its very rare and very valuable two tone blue Selmer Paris case. This case is MISSING its Selmer logo. Im 100% sure this is the matching case, and these are some of the rarest more valueable Selmer cases out there.
