First off, thank you @TinyC for the shout out.Thank you! I've seen this site. A little more than I think I'd like to spend at the moment.. but I understand that that's just how much they cost.
Secondly, @jenerally .....as I said, and others have intimated, you try for a sub-$500 used tenor...you are rolling the dice significantly.
There are bottom-prices to every market. $400 is below the bottom.
This doesn't mean folks do NOT find good, reputable brand play-condition Tenors for $400...now and then....but those are outliers, and a good amount of luck comes into play.
