Re: Yamaha YSL-448G vs YSL-648R

To clarify... the early 648 had a "closed wrap" and the later version had the usual "semi-open wrap" that most Yamahas have today.

And I wish people would stop claiming that the early 648 was a clone of an 88H. Not true.

Any thoughts on pulling the leadpipe of a new 88H slide so that you can use different leadpipes?
A new slide? Should come right out easily.

An older one can be more difficult. This is one that I had pulled.
