looking at new sax

I am looking at a Jupiter 889SG Tenor for $1,179.99 and was wondering how the horn plays and if it is a good deal. I am going to be using it for jazz. Thanx

    That one was the horn I tried out yesterday. It's ok. The look isn't as flashy as the pictures online look like, and the keywork isn't as great as yamahas. The tone actually was nice, but I found it difficult to play. I ended up deciding on the Yamaha 62II, which is a great horn. Instead of the jupiter, I'd spend a little more money, and go with the Yamaha 475, which was a great horn, just didn't have the tone of the 62II.
