Hey my friend!Hey Mario,
Hope all is well!
I've had 62's over the years and also have my mint 62R which is my main horn (sold off all my others as it's just so fantastic).
The 62's were great, classic Yamaha with great ergos and intonation as well as a brighter more modern sound however I was always striving for the core of the much earlier vintage sopranos I've had in the past (VI's, Kings, Martins, Bueschers, Conns, etc.) but with the same comfortability of the Yamaha sops. Then I found my 62R and it changed everything. On top of being super comfortable, having amazing ergos and intonation and having the neck angle which I really prefer personally, it had a much sweeter more mellow sound that echoed the vintage vibe I was after. I love it, it's the best sop I've ever had but you have the pay a pretty penny now to find them as they are getting increasingly hard to find and are very desirable right now.
Those are just my thoughts, it's different for everyone but that's just where I'm at.
Cheers and good luck with the search!
