We take pride in making sure every instrument we sell, new or second hand, is the best it can be! We recently traded this old Yamaha 23 in from a school. This instrument looked ugly, but had always been well serviced and still had a lot of playing life in it.
To make it presentable and interesting to a new purchaser, we stripped it down, removed the major dents sand-blasted it, relacquered it, gave it a nice service and it came up quite a presentable horn. Not just better looking, but also a good player!
