A rare alto from 2005, it is one of only 150 made, with just 70 sold to the US market. This limited edition saxophone commemorates the 50th anniversary of the passing of Charlie “Bird” Parker and features an iconic hummingbird engraving on the bell. The Reference 54 series was designed to capture the tone of the much sought after Mark VI saxophones, with this series known especially for projection and a powerful sound.
This mint condition alto was well taken care of by its professional owner. 97% of the lacquer is intact, with some wear on the side key touch pieces and octave key. Comes with the original deluxe leather covered Selmer case.
