T 800?

Hello how are you.
I have the possibility to buy this saxophone, and according to the seller it is a T 800. According to what I have researched, it seems that this is not the case, one of the things that confuse me is the serial number (00110496). Could you help me with this?
Greetings and many thanks

Serial number puts it in 1981/82, so that works out fine for a T800. The earliest T800 I have pics of is from 1981.

Yanagisawa and other websites have different dates for the introduction of the 80-800-88-880 horns. I tend to think the different dates are for different markets. Making up an example: the 800 series was introduced to the US market in 1980, but introduced in Japan in 1978.

Take a look at my blog regarding the 80 series. I think the biggest thing to remember is the differences between the 500 and 800.
