Yanagisawa A-880 Value

I have a Yanagisawa A-880 (circa 1987-88).  It is in excellent condition, only a small amount of scratching around neck strap hook.  I am looking to sell it, as I have not played it in years and years.  It being such a beautiful horn, someone who is going to enjoy it should have it.  I am seeking advice on what the vaule of this instrument might be.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you

    Got any pictures? Of the horn and the (original) case? Are the pads still in good shape after sitting for years and years? When you last played it, what kind of music were you playing?

    I'm not sure there is much actual demand for that model any more.....it's yesterday's technology.....although they are nice players, I would worry if one of my students paid over $500 for one of those

      Thank you for the feedback. I was thinking around $500, but was actually able to sell it yesterday for $600. So, that seems about right. Just glad it will be enjoyed now, vs collecting dust.
