So, what differentiates the Yanagisawa B-WO2 and B-WO20?

Primarily, the weight of construction. The B-WO2 has a lighter single post to body framework, whereas the B-WO20 features a more robust ribbed body. On the
B-WO2 the posts that suspend the keys away from the body are individually soldered directly to the body tube. On the rib-bodied B-WO20, clusters of posts are first silver-soldered onto bronze plates, or ribs, and these assemblies are
then soldered to the solid bronze body tube.

The heavier construction of the B-WO20 amplifies deeper resonant harmonics, which are acoustically perceived as producing a thicker core to the tone. Although this design increases playing resistance, the B-WO20's denser core tone is preferred in concert and symphony use. The jazz player not seeking low register emphasis might prefer the edge and bark of the un-ribbed B-WO2.
