This Yamaha 225S II flute is in good condition with 85-90% of the original silver plating remaining. There are some light player wear touch spots to the keys. There is a very small ding at the top of the back body joint and one half way up the back of the body joint. There are a couple of very minor dings in the head joint. The tenon at the bottom of the body is pushed in very slightly at the edge. This does not hinder the play-ability or assembly of the flute. Please see pictures for details. The serial number on the flute is “305986A”. The engraving on the body joint reads “Yamaha Established In 1887 Japan 225S II”. The flute has closed tone holes and an off-set G. No accessories are included. It comes in the original Yamaha case in good used condition and there is one small section of felt missing from the inside of the case. This is an excellent student level flute with no B foot. This is a very easy playing flute with a clear tone from top to bottom.
