||Yamaha 23 alto sax. Delacquered saxophone that I purchased from a respectable forum member around 5 years ago and have used this sax on lots of gig work. It is a fantastic instrument and the raw brass gives a real edge to the sound. Something you would pay a few thousand for on a new instrument. This had been stripped by the previous owner and I really like the finish. If you're not already aware, Yamaha only make their very top end saxes in Japan now. Production moved to Indonesia a few years ago for the student/intermediate line, which makes the older 21, 23 and 25 saxes really sought after as they are good, solid Japanese made saxes. The sax has all very good pads, springs and corks and the action is perfect. Can't fault this sax in any way, it has been a great instrument for me and very versatile. I have too many altos so have chosen to sell only for this reason. I will upload more pics. Comes in the original case and this instrument will always hold its value.
