I have owned this instrument for about 10 years but it hasn't been used much in the last 5 as I have been playing baritone. I've just had the slide in for some work and it is now as good as the day I bought it. There is some lacquer missing from the outer slide and a small number of other small blemishes to the lacquer including mute/stand insertion marks. There is also a very small dent on the F attachment tuning slide (the rearmost part of the instrument) which was there when I bought it but doesn't affect the instrument in any way. It comes in its original Yamaha case which is in excellent condition. Happy to provide photos of the instrument if required. Please feel free to come and try before you buy. South Hampshire.
