best one for the money?

I haven't played in about 4 years, but I'm looking to get back to playing tenor sax. What does everyone suggest is the best one for the money? I don't want to spend a lot. Maybe $400 at the absolute most. I'm looking at Monique as my top choice, but I know there are mixed opinions about these. Also- does the color of the horn make any difference in how good of quality it is? I've heard mixed opinions about that one, too... Just let me know what you think- thanks!

    $400 isn't going to buy you anything worth bringing home. Maybe an alto, but definately not a tenor. Hard to find a decent tenor for less than $800. If you're lucky, you might find a decent student model tenor that somebody's trying to sell to pay for college or something. For $400, buy a guitar!
