Yep it's a Dukoff. I believe he uses Hemke reeds on it too.

I thought it was a Simba double reed mpc he special ordered from India.
Now's a good time to get one. Most of the guys who played them have gotten bitten by their cobras, so there are a lot of these suddenly on the market. Try www.ebay.in .

Man, kenny G is great, love his music. Very soothing relaxing. I am starting to learn couple of his tunes from his song book =)

So dukoff is it? I'll try search it out.

Cant believe some people are jealous calling him this and that.

Well if you get a lot of pleasure out of listening to Kenny G, that's good. Regarding opinions, pro and con, you really should use the search function and find out for yourself. There are not only a lot of (redundant) threads, but some pointers you might pick up.

About the mpc, though, he might play a Dukoff but that doesn't mean that's the right mpc for you. There may be other alternatives that would be better. What is your playing experience?

I read that his ligature is hamster sphincter soaked in frog bile for three weeks and that his reed is dried lizard tongue. Very difficult to come by. I used to use the same set up but sold it on ebay for 1500$. I bought my neighbors '74 Gremlin. My camera doesn't work so I can't post a pic but the paint job is just like this one. In fact, this is what we used as a model when we were doin' it up:

I know this is off topic but what was the deal with AMC in the 70s. Couldn't they find somebody, anybody that could design a decent looking car? The gremlin, the matador, the pacer. Who was coming up with this stuff? And why were they allowed to stay employed? Was AMC trying to corner the ugly market?
