This is a very nice condition Yamaha YTS-52, serial number 0087719A. If you are looking to get into an ultra solid and reliable tenor for a great price these YTS-52's are a top shelf choice. The 52 was Yamaha's go to step up/intermediate model for a number of years until they released the 475 and 480 models. They are also very popular choice among touring saxophone players who need something affordable and reliable.  
 
This particular tenor shows some standard play wear indicative of a well played saxophone. There is no history of major dent work and there has never been any solder work. The body tube, bow and bow cap are all in nice original condition. It also has the original Yamaha neck. The neck is in great shape and has never been pulled down. 
 
Sonically this horn plays somewhat on the brighter side and has a slight cut to its core sound.  In addition, the scale on this horn is excellent and intonation is very consistent across all registers.  This would be a great horn for a gigging professional looking to get a backup or to get a good horn in a pinch, or for a beginner to intermediate student looking to upgrade to something better than what they have currently. This tenor is currently in the Saxquest shop awaiting a professional set-up on its current set of leather pads and plastic resonators. It ships out in perfect playing condition with a contoured case.
