Selmer Mark VI Tenor 1959 Original Lacquer Euro Engraved Excellent! 77960

$ 15,500

Here’s a gorgeous, prime serial, 1959 vintage Selmer Mark VI Tenor in absolutely excellent condition. It has original lacquer, original pads, original neck in excellent condition, not damaged or pulled down. This is a Euro-assembled Mark VI, so it has the lighter color French lacquer that you typically see on Euro Mark VI’s, and it has the Euro engraving pattern as well. The top coat of original lacquer over the engraving is a little thicker on Euro VI’s, which makes them have a different look from American-engraved VI’s of the same vintage. It’s the same exact saxophone underneath. Only the lacquer color and engraving pattern is different, since all of these Selmer Mark VI’s were manufactured at the same factory in France, and only finished in different places.

The only past repairs I see on this horn are a ding removed above the octave key, and a small ding removed from the back of the body tube, that is pretty much invisible now. There’s a little light lacquer wear on the back of the body tube, and besides that, you have about 98% of the original lacquer intact and no past repairs or resolders at all. Neck looks great, bell, bow, and body tube are all great. I put this in a BAM Cabine tenor case for photos, since that will keep it safe in shipping, but if you want to discuss getting a vintage Euro Selmer Mark VI tenor case, I might have one I could pair with the horn to complete the set. You won’t find a nicer 1959 Selmer Mark VI tenor for sale anywhere, as this is already in the top 1% of Mark VI’s condition wise. The pads are original, so it’s time for a repad if you want it to play its best, but it’s on consignment, and ‘it’s only original once’ so I’m leaving it original for now. It will be a very easy repad job, as this horn is super clean and nice, and Mark VI’s are easy to work on.
