HELP, I Want One!

JL NY Signature Tenor - Lightly Played!
80161277.  It is in perfect physical condition and has not seen any past repair. As it is a raw brass horn it has started to show natural cosmetic play wear from the last user.  The original neck with the sax is also in great shape and has never been pulled down. 
John Leadbetter designs these tenors to be a viable option for the modern professional in need of the qualities of a good Mark VI at realistic price point. The NY Signature takes the air in easy and showcases a consistent response in all registers. In terms of color the sax keeps a rich warm sound but can achieve a nice and clear amount of brilliance when desired. The key work on the sax is smooth moving under the fingers and is set up with medium spring tension. It also has a very comfortable thumb rest which wraps around further to the left. This is an excellent feature and is perfect for players with large hands. 
This tenor came into our shop playing up a storm on its original set up by tech John Leadbetter. The set-up features Pisoni Pro pads, metal resonators and premium corks and felts. Due to our shop being super backed up and that this horn is still playing great on John's set-up we will not be doing any of our own work to this sax.
This sax ships out playing on it original JL custom set-up and the hard case shown in the photos.
