Yes, it looks very much like a proper MKVI neck, mostly likely off a different horn rather than a factory replacement as you'd expect someone to get a lacquered neck replacement if it is for a lacquered horn.Hello!
About 10 years ago I bought a MK VI that came with a silver neck (see pictures). I am trying to identify what type of neck this is. Is this a "Selmer Paris Mark VI replacement neck" or what else? Can anybody tell?
The factory replacement MK VI necks also were correct in every sense, so that does not make this neck an original. This neck is an original Selmer Paris MK VI neck from a silver-plated MK VI. I can say that with certainty because of several obvious 'tells' visible in the pictures. Andy should take the octave key off and look on the bottom of it for a three-digit number hand-scratched in the big area (underneath the big 'S' on the to). This is the last three digits of the serial number of the sax it came with. Further, this neck came on a sax from the middle to late period of the MK VI and is probably a very good-playing one. Mr. Brecker used such a silver-plated neck on his tenor. The neck looks to be in original condition with no previous damage and is probably worth around $400 or more. Depending on who needs one and how bad they want it, it could sell for $1000 or more. I bought one like this for an earlier MK VI for $350 about ten years ago, ended up giving it to my son who didn't like it either so I put it on ebay and got $1250. I took back my original $350 and gave my son the rest of it because his horn needed an overhaul. Pretty nice deal!BTW, the badge with crosshatching in the circle places it in the Mark VI era, so it is a real VI neck, and not a later replacement.
