Beautiful condition Yamaha Custom Z alto sax in pristine shape, serial number D30475. This is a first series YAS-82Z with very little playing wear, and it is available for a great price. Currently in our repair shop in line for a fresh cleaning and adjustment, it will ship to you in flawless playing condition and ready to bring years more of enjoyment.


As you can see in the photos, this alto is in tremendous shape. There's some scratching on the inside of the bell, on the bottom bow, and on the tube near the neckstrap ring, but all just from normal (light) use. No major lacquer wear to speak of, even on the touch points, and the original lacquer is a solid 99.9% intact. Absolutely no dents or previous damages, including on the original Custom G1 neck, which has never been pulled down.


This sax came to us on its original factory setup. To make it perfect, the horn is currently in our repair shop getting adjusted. We'll clean it up inside and out, replace all key adjustment corks and felts, and a few pads in the upper stack that are showing general wear-and-tear. Finally, we'll optimize key heights and spring tensions and bring everything back to factory specs.


If you've been on the hunt for a good Yamaha Custom but have been shying away from the higher “new” prices, this is a great opportunity to pick up one that has been treated with kid gloves to this point. This alto plays with a very quick response and a lively quality, offering a big, bold contemporary sound. Excellent lead jazz alto and especially great for rock and funk gigs, with a piercing modern tone that cuts well. Ships in its original case.
