Yes but the octave key wont reach the spigot so a little tweaking will be needed. FWIW a Ref54 or Serie 3 neck would be a better option. in fairness Yamaha's Custom necks are great but avoid early G1 necks as these can be a bit 'wide' on the octaves. I've used a G3 -now superseded -on my purple logo tenor 62 for a number of years previously on a 61 with great results.
It will fit on a YTS-62... it may ruin a little bit the intonation of the upper register.
The Series II tenor neck is known to have a huge bore compared to other Selmer tenor necks... which is not ideal on a Yamaha body.
Yamaha had a large bore neck (the Custom G1 which came with the 82Z-I)... as soon as they came out with the 82Z-II they replaced it with the Custom V1, which has a slight smaller bore.
It's more common to see people using a Yamaha neck on a Selmer Series I/II tenor, instead of the opposite.
With 300€ you can almost buy a new Series II Jubilee tenor neck (which is a bit better of the older Series II tenor necks... in terms of pitch tendency).
