Description: Saxophone - Yanagisawa 990u alto sax - great playing order
Yanagisawa 990u alto sax in really excellent playing order, about twelve years old, in original case, with nearly new bronze crook. Large adjustable (and very expensive!) thumbrest fitted - one keyguard professionally removed to accommodate this, but can easily be refixed if necessary. Minor lacquer wear and spotting, light scratching on bell, from professional use. No evidence of any damage or repairs. No dents, except for one in the original crook (easily removed), therefore NEARLY NEW YANAGISAWA BRONZE CROOK IN PERFECT CONDITION IS INCLUDED. Pads, springs, corks all excellent. Very free-blowing horn. Note this is a second-generation 990 (hence the "u" suffix). Pics supplied on request. I will ship only if the buyer pays for insurance FOR THE FULL REPLACEMENT VALUE (approx £1800). This horn is in great used condition, and is exactly as described - I cannot describe it as "mint", so I am asking about half the retail price of a new 991. Please therefore do not consider buying it if you are just looking to turn it round for a quick profit.
