YAS-62 - Early Vintage Purple Logo
This is a player's Yamaha YAS-62 alto sax, serial number 005192. This is one of the highly desired early “purple logo” models. It shows the history of its fare share of performances in the past but is in solid condition and was recently completely overhauled by Miles Ahead music shop. As a player this alto has nice balanced sound from top to bottom and is considerably more free blowing then the modern YAS-62. If you are looking for a flexible player with plenty of projection and color the 62 is a perfect choice. 
The body of the saxophone is solid condition showing the cosmetic history of plenty of past play wear. It does not show any history of major abuse. The body tube, bow, bow cap and bell are all in nice shape. All of the key guards and key guard feet are also in great shape and have never had any solder repairs. The original Yamaha neck is in excellent condition and has never been pulled down. 
The purple logo Yamahas have found quite the cult following in the last few years, players are on to how nice they play and how much of a bargain they are compared to newer 62's. This alto was recently overhauled by Miles Ahead music shop with premium leather pads and metal resonators. Ships in vintage Yamaha hard case.
