I got a yani a901 in the mail from Italy with a bent body near the middle around where the straphook ring is, you can see the rods are bent slightly too. It's been to a few techs and they can't get it playing, no matter what it is playing stuffy. I am taking it into the best tech soon to have it looked at. Is this something that can be fixed? It's making me nervous. :(

Definitely. If it is supported mainly from the top and the bow inside the case, then it was possibly bent in transit. But most bends can quickly be straightened, followed by some re-alignment of posts, and then adjustment.

This brand is particularly easy to work on. If those technicians could not straighten it and get it playing beautifully, they should not be called sax technicians.
