This bari is from the good 70s era(my gut), and early to the Yanagisawa lineage. (Yani seal on the neck brace, "Japan" with the serial number, which is: #876,4xx. Original lacquer finish at 70% on body & keys. Great, heavy Stainless Steel Springs! (ACTION: firm and fast) These are very nice baritones that you don't have to spend $3000 in order to acquire. No extra heavy damage to mention. (school engraved #s under the serial number) Notes of repair: perhaps to most notable thing is the replacement neck; a few screws have been replaced 7x or so resolders; the tenon screw will need strengthened, & F3 arm. bell lip was slightly bent.
Dents are not too bad for a baritone. I will do my best to make a few of the them disappear and help the cosmetic look. CASE: Arrived with a nice hard, wood case.
Waiting for PC work: matching neck repairs(sizing and tenon work), pads.
