Vintage 1954 Selmer Mark VI 56xxx tenor saxophone with original case. This incredibly rare 1st year production Mark VI has had two owners.One of the photos captures the name of the music store identification plate along with the former owners name attached to the original case. The horn has developed a beautiful patina and the lacquer has that unmistakable dark honey color that the US factory used during the initial Mark VI run. It is clear that the original owner took great care of this tenor and he indicated that he never sent the horn to be redone. The neck shows signs of minor pull-down, however the issue was corrected at a reputable woodwind repair shop.
The neck has the matching serial number stamped on the back of the neck. The horn has a few small dings; which can be expected with a saxophone of this age.There is evidence of past dent work around the bow; although the work was done well and it is perfectly round. The original Selmer case shows signs of wear and the zipper is not working. The Selmer case has a clarinet case, space for a flute, and extra storage space.
