#199k, Finish: silver plated keys, Original Lacquer body. In excellent condition.  I bought this from the original owner. It was well loved as you can see. Originally marketed for the European market, these Mark VI's had a different engraving, and also the silver plated keys! Three 'cons' to mention: There was a resolder to the Eb guard foot, and some small marks near the palm keys from internal wear (photo name: "...After018"), and C guard feet with minor dents removed. Otherwise, she's as pretty as the photos.

CASE: I am looking to upgrade this one to a nice Protec, or equivalent that you can help choose. I also have the original that we should discuss.

REBUILD: This one received an upgraded rebuild. Black Saxgourmet Roo pads ($100); Pisoni, nickel plated domed resos; and our WWS Premium Upgrade ($299).

$824 Rebuild
$100 pad upgrade
$299 WWS Premium
= $1223 value + taxes(TBD on location?)

TONE: [Selmer tone] all day! - We assembled this sax to be able to do more than just 'quiet jazz'. This setup will be towards a Lead Alto sound and great for solo work and rock/blues players.
