    This one does not appear to be made by Yamaha.  If this alto was manufactured by Yamaha, it will say that it is made in Japan near the serial number.  Here is a link to a serial number chart for Vito

    This reference also mentions that KHS/Jupiter made some of the Vito saxes.  I believe that Beaugnier also made some of them.  Note that the link to the Yamaha made models does not include your serial number.
