Thanks you folks so very, VERY much for this info. I am presently negotiating the price of a Yamaha sax which is being represented to me as new and I have doubts about that. After reading your posts, I've emailed Yamaha and am hoping for as detailed an answer as you got. It would be good for both me and the seller as well.jmathesonjr said:I emailed Yamaha USA and not only did I get the shipping date (month/day/year), but the date it left the factory (M/D/Y), the specific factory location, the date it arrived in the States (M/D/Y), and the date (M/D/Y) that the dealer I bought it from took possession of my horn.
I got the information on my Yamaha by calling up their customer service line with my serial number. They told me that their information only extends to the date the horn was shipped from the factory in Japan, and they said that horns don't usually sit in the factory for very long. I was pretty satisfied with what I got from them, and it took all of five minutes on the phone.jmathesonjr said:All I did was email the model number and serical number to Yamaha asking about the year it was made.
