Excellent condition bronze series Yanagisawa AWO20 alto sax, serial number 00399172. This alto has been well cared for and properly maintained. It shows only minor lacquer wear and no previous damages, and is available for a great price for where these typically sell.


From a physical standpoint, this alto is just about perfect. No dents or dings, no resolders, no previous repairs of any kind. The bottom bow, bell flare, bell-to-body brace, and neck are all in flawless physical condition. The sax does show some lacquer wear, including a spot on the backside of the bell and on the usual touch points here and there, but all is purely cosmetic and does not affect play. Overall, the original lacquer is still 90%+ intact. The sax currently has some risers on the palm keys, which we can remove and clean up the area at the buyer's request if desired (may be some lacquer loss, depending on what kind of glue was previously used).


This alto was recently given a full pro set up by another shop, and our techs have signed off on it as good work. Everything is sealing well, with some new material that feels great, and the horn has a very “like new” feel under your fingers, with no play or lost motion in the action.


These bronze series Yani's are dynamic players that can do it all, and this alto is no exception. It plays with a rich, lush tone, full of warmth and color, and the bronze construction adds complexity and richness that is unparalleled. Very strong focus with impeccable intonation, it responds lightning-quick. Fantastic professional alto that won't be here for long! Ships in its original case.
