YAS-82Z First Series Custom Z
This is a pristine condition Yamaha Custom Z alto sax in black lacquer, serial number C46872. This YAS-82Z is as pretty as they come, and the black lacquer is a site to see in person.
 
This alto has been treated with kid gloves over its short life so far. The black lacquer shows no real wear to speak of, and there are no dents, dings, or resolders anywhere. The original G1 Custom neck shows no previous damages or repairs. The sax really is as close to perfect as a used horn can get. The black lacquer option on a Custom Z alto is a nice combination. 
 
 
The Z's tend to play a little on the brighter side, but the heavier lacquer warms that some, and the result is a full, powerful horn with depth and color. This alto has the power to play lead alto in jazz or sit in front of a rock band, but can also be tamed down to play in the concert band setting. A very well rounded sax. The key action is smooth under the fingers allowing for crisp fluid motion across the entire instrument. If you have ever had the desire for the sound and feel of a Mark VI in a modern application a Custom Z is a top shelf choice. 
 
This saxophone comes playing great on the original pads and resonators. They are all in terrific condition. This sax is currently awaiting a cleaning and adjustment in the Saxquest shop. It ships out in perfect playing condition with the original Yamaha case.
