These flutes are among some of the best instruments Yamaha has ever made. While this model is not made any more, it is very similar to the current model YFL-687H. This instrument has everything you'd expect from a professional flute. Solid silver head, body, and foot, silver-plated keys with pointed key arms. Open hole, inline G, low B foot, and gizmo key. Cosmetically, this flute is very nice - there are a couple minor dings but nothing serious. Pads and action are excellent, and this flute is ready to play as is.
