I'm wondering if I'm committing a kind of sacrilege...I've got a very nice MKVI alto (160xxx). Tonally speaking its a great mix of what I like, rich, darkish, but not too dark, great core of sound etc. It plays well in tune and responds well. Here's the possible sacrilege part...I had a chance to pick up a Yamaha Custom G1 neck at a reasonable used price. I've had this to play on a week before I had to make my choice to buy it.
I've decided to buy it as it seems to do a few positive things: Intonation is still good, ease of playing is a little better, response is improved, and the tone is fatter and more flexible. I know different necks can improve a horn in various ways (or not...) but mixing a Yamaha with a Selmer MKVI ?:shock: I pose the question: Has anyone else used a G1 neck on their MKVI alto or Tenor for the long term?
