Local help needed with future purchase of a Tenor
I am seriously considering getting a sax for my very good friend's daughter. She is a very gifted young lady who has won awards in school for her talent. It's getting time for her to upgrade to a quality instrument.
I know Yamaha makes a pretty nice sax, but I think she might fall in love with a Selmer MK VI. I am fully aware that these can run over $10k...or more. I'm thinking that the later ones from the seventies will be a bit more affordable.
I know absolutely nothing about them and would be interested in getting some help deterining originality, condition and price, when the time comes.
I am not at all against learning and if someone has tips of things I should look for, I would be grateful.
I live in Broomfield, CO, which is north of Devner and close to Boulder. Is there someone in the area that can help me or a shope where I can take one to have evaluated.
BTW, there is a MLK VI advertised locally on CL for under $4k. Costwise, I want to keep it at or below $5k. The serial on it is 199355, which I believe is early seventies.
Thanks very much.
