It's look weird, and I have no idea what model it is. 1dcf42d2f8826a50f2fee226b84a1d3c.jpegImage Enlarger2ef3269a694152b613b136a7c031ba31.jpegImage Enlarger

Are you sure its a Yamaha?

except for being a 5 string, it looks identical in every way like this one from Shar.

 It could also be a Caraya violin.

Thanks lol XD
The owner claimed that it was Yamaha, and I really doubt it. We had a really rage out argument that seems to be never ending. Thanks to you guys that just unmask a scammer.

I can't be sure but it doesn't seem like it is a Yamaha. I'll ask our Yamaha rep to confirm our suspicion. 🙂

After confirming with the Yamaha guys I received this reply:

"Not even close. That’s a Yamaha Motors Logo, btw."

I guess we should have noticed that as well. LOL

So I asked them what the difference was between the music logo and the motors logo. Apparently the M and the tuning forks are slightly different.

The M has a raised middle part and the tuning forks are within the inner ring instead of the outside ring for the music logo.

1st motors then music.
