HELP, I Want One!

This is a used Yamaha YAS-62 SIII alto saxophone in gold lacquer, serial number E65136. If you are looking for a great pro horn and are on a budget this one can be picked up at a fabulous price. While this saxophone is in used condition it is one of the newer SIII models. These feature the newer 62 neck as well as key work to high F#. 
This particular alto was played on very thoroughly by the last owner. It shows  standard cosmetic wear in the forum of light scratches and a few dings. All of the key guards are in excellent condition and have never received solder repair. A few notable wear spots on the horn is the scratches around the neck hook ring. The bow cap was also slightly pushed in towards the front. But the bow itself is still in good shape. The original 62 neck is with this interment. This neck has never been pulled down. It currently has a small ding between the octave pip and neck cork, this will be taken out while the sax is in our shop. 
The alto came into our shop on its original factory set of pads and materials. Because all of these pads are very played out this saxophone is currently awaiting a mechanical restoration in our shop. The work will include a complete disassemble, cleaning and precise key fitting. It will be set-up with all new Valentino leather pads, brown nylon resonators as well as all new key materials. Once this work is complete the saxophone will once again be in perfect playing condition. 
The 62 has long been a go to choice of the professional who needs something reliable and versatile. If you are not particular about looks you can pick this one up at a fantastic price. Ships in perfect playing condition with our professional overhaul and a new Protec Max contoured case.
