I’m looking for alto necks that fit Yanagisawa that aren’t necessarily Yanagisawa necks. But have had comfortable results. Only trying to expand my options.

A Yamaha neck might work? Haven't tried it. Actually, I put my Cannonball Fat Neck on my Yani and it worked well, just too free-blowing for my taste.

You can have a look at the alto-neck thread I started (https://forum.saxontheweb.net/showthread.php?336794-Replacement-Necks-for-Alto-in-General). There are a lot, which also fit to Yanagisawa altos.
The list was getting much bigger than I thought. I believe all of these are great necks.
I just tried 2 Gloger alto necks on my Selmer SBA. They were good, but the difference to the original neck was quite small. Karsten Gloger also offers them for Yanagisawa.

My daughter uses a Yamaha G1 on her Yani 880 alto with good results.... makes it a bit more free-blowing. You could find a used one for not a lot of dough, and sell it for what you paid if it's not what you're looking for.
