HELP, I Want One!

Yamaha Custom 875 Tenor Sax
This is a lovely Yamaha YTS-875 Custom tenor sax in original black lacquer, serial number 007046. Physically this saxophone is in beautiful condition and does not look like it has seen much play time in the past. The Custom models are sought after by the players looking for a darker more focused sound. This one in certainly no exception and is a fine player. The material of the black lacquer finish always seems to add an additional level of crispness to the sound. As you would expect from any pro Yamaha the key work feels tremendous and smooth under the fingers. 
The body of the sax is in great shape. It does show just a little bit of cosmetic play wear but nothing outside of the typical light scratching. The body tube, bow, bell and bow cap are all super clean with the black finish. There is some notable cosmetic play wear around the bell flare and on the low Eb key. The original M1 neck is with the saxophone and is in beautiful condition. It has never been pulled down and the finish looks excellent as well. 
The last owner of the sax kept it in good condition over the years. All of the pads and resonators are in excellent condition and have plenty of life left in them. This saxophone is currently awaiting a professional set up in the Saxquest shop. We are going to take our time and perfectly regulate all of the key heights and spring tension. Once complete the tenor will be in perfect playing condition. Tenor ships with contoured gator case.
