Hi, i need some help to recognize model and year of made my Yanagisawa tenor. I can' t find any information about it, there is only serial number (0027810*)and Yani graver. Thanks for any informations.
over the years I have learned that not al came with stainless steel springs (and other things like the spatula made of gold coloured plastic) but the ribless construction was the giveaway together with the absence of designation and the SN contemporaneity with the 800 series
Interesting. I thought the springs were the bulletproof way to tell.
Do you know if it is the late/early 500s that had blued springs?
Anyhow - you know for sure that it is a 500 if the springs are stainless. I haven't seen stainless on other Yanis... apparently it may still be a 500 if it has blued springs.
