This is the 1st pro saxophone Yamaha produced, these horns are still considered very good quality horns with the prices continually going up. The build quality is excellent, as are the ergonomics.
The sound is big and a little on the brighter side, but a lot of that depends on you and your mouthpiece. This one is in absolute mint condition as you may ever find. There are no dents or dings. There are some scratches, but what is there is very light. To illustrate just how little scratching there is I have also included a picture of the neck strap ring which is always the most abused area of the horn.The lacquer is 100% with no loss on any of the touch keys(pinky tables and side Bb to E). All of the pads are original and are in very good condition.
I have made adjustments to the horn to bring it up to top playing condition and also changed the neck cork as well as tightened the neck tenon just a little to make it snug. A few rods and screws were also pulled to check for rust, but they were all pristine.It comes with the original case in great condition, mouthpiece, ligature, cap, cork grease container and keys for the case.
