Yamaha Custom Tenor 875 – Yamaha Custom M1 Neck
This is a very pretty Yamaha YTS 875 “Custom” tenor sax in black lacquer, serial #003886. Talk about a real beauty. This is easily one of the most pristine black lacquer saxophones we have had in the shop in quite some time. The black lacquer finish is absolutely pristine across the body and neck. There is no history of any previous repairs on the tenor. From the looks of things the tenor was treated as a very cherished item and left in the case. The 875 Custom is the predecessor to the current production 875 Custom EX II. The earlier models like this one included the Yamaha Custom M1 neck and a Yamaha wood box hard case. Both the neck and case are also in beautiful condition. 
 
In addition to the great looks this sax has it is also a knock out player. It has a super efficient and fast response to air flow. The sonic efficiency of this tenor is extremely impressive. It is definitely on the darker side  regarding sound color. In comparison to the Modern EXII models this Custom does seem to be a noticeably more free blowing. 
 
This tenor is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up. We will go through the sax top to bottom and replace any needed pads and materials. The saxophone will be play tested and fine tuned until it I in perfect playing condition. This is a very special playing tenor and it has the looks to match!
