This open box 2023 Yanagisawa A-WO10 alto saxophone includes the complete retail kit and has a Yanagisawa warranty for Japan only.  Only one customer tried it out with his own mouthpiece and decided on a different model.  The saxophone plays beautifully and is in brand new condition with no signs of use.  The price includes free UPS Ground shipping to the contiguous 48 states.

While other instrument manufacturers expand into mass production, the fully ribbed A-WO10 elite professional alto saxophone continues to be precision crafted by hand in Japan to standards that have established Yanagisawa as the world's premier manufacturer of specialty professional and elite saxophones.

Building on the new generation A-WO1, the A-WO10 adds ribbing under all keys, dual arms on the large valves, Yanagisawa's proprietary bi-directional C#-B table linkage for effortless transitions, enhanced engraving, and upgraded neck with an underslung octave key.
