This Paris Mark VI was made c.1965. There is no lacquer on the horn or keys and was removed by the previous owner. Mechanically the horn is in excellent condition and only has some minor ripples due to previous ding repairs. The pearls are in excellent condition. It appears to be all original with no previous bad repairs or tool marks, only a resolder mark on one key guard. A few scratches and scuffs which would be normal for a horn this age. The horn was just overhauled by Joe Cook one of the original workers at the Selmer factory who padded and assembled these horns in the 1960's. He used black kangaroo skin pads and all new bumpers, felts and corks.
The original case is included along with a new hand crafted grenadilla neck plug, cork grease, care kit and reeds of your choice. Come try this one out at the store!
