I've offered to list a friend's mark vi on my ebay account, but the more I read about the subject, the less I realise I know about it!
So, I have this as a 117xxx tenor, early 60's (?)
The details;
Paris build, (no serial number on neck)
european engraved,
no F# key
not a relaq as the engraving is sharp. (?)
has been professionally chemically delaquered, more to improve sound than for cosmetic reasons (old laquer was dark and a bit untidy if I remember correctly)
The story;
The owner is a pro player(my ex-teacher and mentor) who makes this horn sound awesome. It has a fabulous sound. He seemed to be always looking for ways to improve his sound and has now bought another vi with a "different" sound (does that sound familiar!) and now has to sell this one before the missus finds out!
Here's a couple of pics. I have some mp3 bites but don't know how to post them for web access. (my server was less than helpful)
Your opinions,questions and help would be appreciated.

I would have added something about the intonation of the instrument and some subjective comments about your personal experience of playing this specific Mark VI. Nice soundclip by the way, your sound and technique is awesome!
