Every once and a while you get a horn in with an interesting story. Something that is slightly out of the norm, but really really cool. This horn falls in that category. Structurally this horn has 1 re-solder, done very well, and no major trauma. In fact, there is very little lacquer wear. It has 97% lacquer remaining. It has all the original resos in it and what looks like some original pads still too. Here's where the story gets interesting. It has a later VI neck that has been paired with it. It also looks as if this horn may have been re-lacquered in the late 60's. We have hotly debated whether it's original in the shop. Some for and some against. Either way it is a FABULOUS example of a Mark VI. The neck that was paired with it looks to be from the 140xxx - 160xxx range and is a great player. The horn plays now, but really needs an overhaul to play well due to the pad age. It has a BIG beefy sound with that nice Selmer core. When all is said and done this horn will be a GREAT Mark VI.
