It’s a very nice player, incredible that Yanagisawa had so many stencils they made back then, today, they have no overcapacity at all, waiting lists are very long for most instruments

Well, in the 1970s they were just beginning to ramp up production and had zero name recognition.

I remember seeing brand new Yanagisawa saxes (models were marked 1100 and 2200 I think) in 1971 or 1972 at a big band festival we played at in the midwest.
They had soprano, alto, tenor. None of us had ever heard of them.
