my real question is why change out the neck in the first place and is the improvement worth $300?
I wouldn't replace it until you do all the things to set up the horn correctly. Most of the time, replacement necks do not improve saxophones. However, i do use replacement necks on some of my saxes. there is usually a trade off, however. For example, the replacement neck may be louder, but the intonation is worse.

Also, I have a Model 162 Alto that I also recently purchased that has a different neck… I'd be interested in identifying this neck if possible.
Photos would help.
