Selmer MarkVI Alto Saxophone, RARE. For sale is a 1960 Special Ordered Selmer Mark VI Alto, with 99.9% (Actually, it's 100%, but just in case) original silver plating in-tact, and gold wash bell. Special ordered with high F#, high Eb trill, G# trill, Eb trill.Obviously ordered by a classical player. Please see the photos to see all the special keys, and factory mods, etc. Let me say again, all these special mods have been done at the Selmer factory while the horn was being assembled. This horn is 100% original. This is the proverbial "white elephant", a horn that doesn't or isn't supposed to exist. The only one like it I've ever seen set up this way, 5-digit, European the "S" on the octave key is painted a dark, navy blue. As this horn is 100% original, I believe this color to be as well. Not the normal royal blue, or black painted "S" you see on European horns of this vintage, etc. This horn has all the earmarks of a MkVI. The most versatile sound ever in Selmer history, big and bold, soft and sweet, and everything in between. Equally at home in a classical or jazz setting. Being silver plated, the response is slightly different from lacquered horn, as you know. Comes with the original Selmer tray-pak case (that has seen better days), and custom reproduction lignum vitae neck plug. The pictures say it all! ALL SALES ARE FINAL, NO exceptions!!! This is not for those looking to try out a vintage horn, then bail out. Go to your local music store for that. Only ships to the US 50 States, and?? No exceptions, so don't ask.
