Yes, I saw that too and somebody beat me to it, a friend of mine in the NL has a Soprano which is likely to be a Yanagisawa S6 same nickel plate

The model number may be on the left side of the body tube around the same level as the serial number.
It is on my A4 and T4.

This sax is in good playing condition but cosmetic condition is terrible, what would be a fair price ?

I have just found a Yanagisawa Alto ( A5) with high F# made voor Schenkelaars! Beautiful Silver plate horn!

I think this is a late ’70 begin ’80 A5 serial number is 17901498


Here are a few, soon this will be advertised on the for sale section (click several times to enlarge, pics are very large you can see minute details)

The tarnish is only very superficial.

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.
