  • Status:  For Sale!
  • Finish:  Original Lacquer
  • Serial Number: 10,8xx

Highly sought after "purple logo" YSS-62 - Serial # 10,8xx, original lacquer in good, used, condition. Keyed to high F# also. It's in relatively clean condition with the pictures telling the story; I'll note the upper pip either has an acid bleed or a light resolder. This sax was owned by an adult player and played/loved well. It arrived to WWS with the many of the original factory pads in it. It does play decent right now to test and get a vibe on its tone and ergos - I like it. (This is the older, deeper tone from the "purple logo" era.)

REBUILD: (Included) - TBD - It will get a WWS Standard Rebuild included and be a sweet soprano for your collection and enjoyment. You can order it and help choose the setup. However, left to my own methods, I would do a  similar setup as the factory original.

CASE: Original hard case.

This is a Consignment instrument, however, is being sold as a normal WWS inventory which will include a rebuild to your personal specifications.
