Fiddle or Violin?

Since he runs a pawnshop, I decided to ask a friend of mine to appraise my grandfather’s violin.

“Old fiddles aren’t worth much, I’m afraid,” he explained.

“What makes it a fiddle and not a violin?” I asked.

“If you’re buying it from me, it’s a violin. If I’m buying it from you, it’s a fiddle.”
