I have been offered for a price a mint condition Selmer MKVI 1954. I was looking to get the new Selmer Reference 54 later this year. The chap selling knows this. I’ve played the instrument and know the guy well. He is the original owner! I’ve also seen a very nice Selmer MKVI 1974 for sell at one of my dealers which is a heck of a chuck of change less than the 1954 MKVI, but not as cheap as the new Ref. 54. As always, here’s the quandary - I am one of those folks that like to buy new and haven’t bought a second hand anything in at least ten years! But in this case I am thinking of making an exception, a vintage horn would be nice to own. If I buy new I’ll wait as planned but obvious with second-hand offers, I can’t. However, before delving in I wondered if I could have your thoughts on either of the instruments, the Pro’s and Con’s so to speak! NOTE: The Alto is my main instrument!
