I saw a violin retailer who said that he would set up an instrument as a violin or a fiddle at the purchaser's request.  What's the difference? 

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright

Oftentimes fiddlers prefer the sound of steel strings and want a flatter bridge to make doublestops easier. You should ask the retailer what the options are. In the end, it's nothing that can't be swapped out later.
