Vintage 1955 Selmer Paris Mark VI Alto Saxophone
5 DIGIT, ALL ORIGINAL ONE OWNER
Model: Selmer Mark VI Alto saxophone
Serial: 61xxx dates to 1955
Finish: all original lacquer, nice dark gold tint, almost perfect condition other than a few blemishes, a main area on the bottom bow guard seam where the lacquer has worn, but overall absolutely gorgeous.
Pads: pads look old but are playable as is, possibly the original pads… serviced and checked for leaks, all good.
Body: no major damage at all seen, some would call this horn MINT, but there are some very minuscule issues that we would consider it to not be mint, but very very close.
Key work: feels like a million bucks under your fingers, super smooth and quick action, just a joy to play.
Playability: a really sweet and rich tone, not to dark at all, very vibrant and super smooth. It’s horns like this one that made the Mark VI famous.
Accessories: loaded with all original documents: original Selmer instrument catalog, Selmer price list, Selmer Band guide, Selmer manual, letter from Selmer to the new owner, original bill of sale and sales agreement, original Selmer polishing cloth that looks brand new, Selmer cork grease, Selmer neck strap, music lyre, original Selmer case with plastic Selmer cover, original end plug, original neck.

Renatoon 10/14/13This is too good to be true. It looks mint. I can't believe it has the Chesterfield case. Seems it was played for awhile and left in storage for half a century. $14,000 seems a bit high but a high income musician who loves this horn would pay it. Good to know horns like this exist. I have an earlier M57*** and needed a comparable price. I may sell mine because of my health. THANKS !
