This horn is marked Mark VII
it plays really well and has a nice sound and the keywork is similar to that of a mark vi
it has the serial number of a 1972 mark vi
could it be one of the first mark vii's or even a misprinted mark vi?
The side-keys (right hand palm and pinky) are definitely MkVII's. The neck seems to be a MkVI. They ARE compatible, and hugely improve the overall sound and playability of the MkVII. The main mystery remains the low serial nr.
