This is a breathtakingly beautiful horn - a vintage Selmer Cigar Cutter tenor saxophone in gold plate, serial number 16964. This horn is in incredible condition, and has all new pads as well.
As you can see in the pictures, this horn looks fantastic. It has a matte gold finish on the body, and burnished (shiny) gold plate around the engraving and on the keys. The sax is physically perfect with no dents. It is just about as nice as they come.
This horn features a rich warm sound and very comfortable response. It is certainly an instrument for the true collector.
