That is wild. As near as I can tell, it has regular drawn tone holes so it was not made by Martin at all. Must have been a few of these made before the decision to go with the Yani 800 with the Martin name on it. Even those had only a short run. The action was fast and furious in those last days of Martin. I think a true Martin fanatic must have this horn as well as an 800.

Looks like a Conn 10M with a Martin low key guard. Are you sure it's Yanagisawa? All the mechanism looks like a 10M.

Thanks for the link, I hadn't seen pics of an T3 before I just assumed they were like the T4.

I agree whaler, the early Selmer BA style Yanis are great underrated horns.
