I'm guessing maybe 20 years old at least. Also, it is not the SC90X series, either. Note the in-line palm keys, a palm-key design that was styled after the Selmer MKVI and present on Yanagisawa's S-6 models of the 1980's. The case is also an older model. DAVE

Difficult to make out for certain but it looks from the serial like a 1982 instrument - plenty of posts on Yani serial numbers but I copied the following from a Googled website:

1972 - 12729030
1973 - 12731254 1987 - 00141658
1974 - 12745400 1988 - 00148774
1975 - 12753382 1989 - 00156006
1976 - 12764553 1990 - 00162968
1977 - 12775790 1991 - 00170073
1978 - 12781317 1992 - 00177116
1979 - 12791801 1993 - 00184318
1980 - 00102143 1994 - 00189050
1981 - 00106981 1995 - 00197400
1982 - 00111892 1996 - 00205400
1983 - 00117142 1997 - 00213000
1984 - 00122663 1998 - 00219500
1985 - 00128485 1999 - 00228250
1986 - 00134903 2000 - 00235000

My straight sop (1989) has virtually identical keywork.

Senior moment - thought "1981" but typed "1982". It's an 81 horn I think.

Doh.

My Yani soprano has the serial number 00103661 and its, apart from the case and more scratches, similar to this one. I got myself a neck thats less bended, - is was almost as I got a new horn.

As Dave said, it is not one of the SC-90X series because its octave key is not an underslung one.

Could be a curved S 6?
