YTS-61 Tenor Sax value

by Matthew Merryman
(Bellevue, NE)

I have a Yamaha YTS-61 sax with serial #1798. I know that this is one of the first tenor saxes that Yamaha built, and it is a well playing instrument. Other than that I have no idea how to value it. I've seen similar models running from 400-2900 dollars. So where is the value? I purchased mine for $500 and I think that was a deal because the horn has no major defects. I'm looking to sell it but I do not want to get ripped off either.
