Stunning Vintage Selmer Reference 54 Alto Saxophone...

This saxophone is my baby, and has been used professionally for some years. It has been highly maintained and up till now, regularly played. The reference 54 is in a league of it's own and the tone and structure of the instrument is both elegant and beautiful. This saxophone would suit a professional / career player or student looking to study music.
The 54 is a clear tip of the hat to 1954 when the MKVi was first produced and the look of the new instrument oozes class and character. The matt lacquer combines a modern look but with a vintage feel and the intricate hand engraving really delivers on an aesthetic level, but most importantly, the sound concept and intonation is spot on.
My professional playing days are over and it needs someone who will love and appreciate it, like I have over the years. It has been serviced annually, last one February 2016.
This Reference 54 comes in a hard, Reference gig bag style case. The saxophone also comes with a metal mouthpiece. The pad seating is spot on and the springing and venting is set up to perform at the optimal level.
