Saxophones Selmer 5-digit 1957 vintage Selmer Mk6 alto sax with High F#. Sensible offers considered. Original honey gold lacquer, approximately 95% remaining - see photos. More on my website: message me for a direct link. (I also hope to create a video with decent sound quality of the Mk6 alto being played by myself and a couple of my pro player friends.) The photos make the sax look glossier than it actually is due to the white background and flash units in soft boxes - when seen for real, there is more of a patina and vintage look, but they do show a lot more clear detail as a result, especially in the shadow areas. Note that the horn has a very distinct dark honey gold colour, but Facebook and different devices, browsers etc might make look it a lot lighter. In good playing order and has a fantastic sound, but arthritis in my hand means that I need one with a slightly different key layout. I bought the sax 2nd hand in 1976, and I'm still using it on gigs & jams on a regular basis. I love the sound that I'm able to get from the horn and will miss it a great deal. There are 4 very minor dings - 1 faint one on the body tube just below the sling ring, and a couple on the plain side of the bow just above the bow guard. There are no dings or dents on the bell, bell tube, or the flare. Neck is in excellent condition and has never been bent or pulled down. All corks & felts are present. Comes with a BAM case but no other extras e.g. no mouthpiece, strap etc. Im told by those in the know that these early 5 digit MkVIs are highly sought after, but to me, its simply a fantastic horn with an amazing sound. £5,995 07808 329561
