    Hi.
    I have a 22 tenor...it's very much like a 21, but has copper lacquer. They are rare and I believe only made for the home market. I imported my one from Japan last year and it makes an excellent back horn. I actually used it for 3 or 4 months while my main horn was off the road. I think they date from the early 70's

    Brand New or used one? Not really hard finding Yamaha's sax in local store. Where do you live btw?

    I have a Yamaha YAS-31 alto sax, SN 025236. It is not listed in the OP, but it must have been made in the 1970's when the 61's were made.

    My tech was working on this horn and a YAS-61 at the same time, and he said the horns were the same except for the plastic key touches on 31 and pearl key touches on the 61, and some engraving on the 61 that was not on the 31.

    Some of the early 31's even had the real MOP key touches and thumb rest, like the 61's.

    Its used and i think it sold.
    I live in South east Wisconsin
    I got my eye on a few. It hard to find one that hasn't been neglected.
    This guy in Japan has some really nice looking saxophones and excellent feedback.

    I think this might be of some use to clarify something from the “ for sale section”

    The Vito YAS-23 serial numbers beginning with a 5 like 501000 starting in 1989 do not match the Yamaha YAS-23 serials but the Vito YAS-21 serials from 1970-1980 do match the Yamaha YAS-21 serials.

    After 1980 the Vito serials don't seem to match.
    From the Yamaha serial numbers and purchase dates I've seen the Vito serials do match the Yamahas for the YAS-21 up to 1980.
    The YAS-21 seems to become the YAS-23 around 1980 and the YAS-23/25 seems to become the YAS-275 around 2000/2001.
