Selmer Paris Model 74F 'Reference 54' Professional Tenor Saxophone MINT CONDITION
This is a MINT Selmer Reference 54 tenor saxophone.
Designed to be a faithful copy of a 1954 Selmer Mark VI tenor saxophone, the Reference 54 has been making quite a name for itself. Many are saying that this is the best tenor from Selmer since the early VIs. This one has an dark gold finish to replicate the subtle aging of the lacquer of those vintage tenors.
