1956 Selmer Mark VI alto saxophone, s/n 64252, with approximatly 95% original lacquer. This is a gorgeous 5-digit Mark VI that is in impeccable physical condition. The neck is original to the horn and has a matching serial number. There are no resoldered joints. The bell flare looks perfect. I can spot a few very shallow dings which can easily be taken out, but there are no significant dents or previous repairs. The sax is playing well on a mid-life set of pads with nylon resonators. The horn is sealing well and plays easily down to low Bb. It will get checked out by my tech before it ships to ensure perfect pad seal. I also plan to have him remove the glued on rubber key risers and carefully remove the shallow dings. The sax comes in a Selmer case made by Bam, which offers excellent protection for the horn. 

This is a great playing sax. It has a tremendous core that is on the darker side, but there's a lot of projection when you want to push it. Some early Mark VI's can be overly dark, and I don't think this one falls into that category. It feels powerful and efficient and has a gorgeous tonal palette.
