looks like non original laq, so I wouldnt pay more than 3000 unless it was a good player. I could very well be wrong about laq so ask someone who really knows. Is it a euro horn?
I think the both of you got that conclusion from the picture where is possible to see the Selmer logo.I thought it looked like a relacquer too.
Partly, but mostly because of the colour, and also the way it has become discoloured. Very difficult to tell from photos though. Either way it's not a top dollar horn, but why worry if it plays well?I think the both of you got that conclusion from the picture where is possible to see the Selmer logo.
I just responded to a thread about the stamp on Selmer Paris horns.I think the both of you got that conclusion from the picture where is possible to see the Selmer logo.
Well, the engraving is not that deep there becouse it have to had been rubbed constantly against some surface.
My technician and some other Sax freaks in the area affirm it is original lacquer.
I've seen some Selmer horns where the label wasn't completely visible, mostly MKVIIs and Super Action 80s.I just responded to a thread about the stamp on Selmer Paris horns.
I bought a Serie II brand new in 2004 and part of the word " Super " is barely visible because the stamp is uneven and faded.
I've concluded the " experts " don't know what they're talking about making a determination from a stamp. Ridiculous.
And I'm not talking about the guys that said " I'm not sure".
I'm talking about the ones that go tire kicking and have no interest in the horn and dub it a re lacquer.
I wonder how many thousands of dollars have been loss because "they" have pontificated.
Not just about the relacquering thing but; What about horns (a lot out there) that are not 2nd but 30th hand?...Sometimes it's not that easy to trace a horn's history, it's ok for the work done (resoldering, relac, dings, dents...etc) but for the rest...On the other hand, when you know the provenance of the horn, you know if it has been re-lacquered.
