The counterfeit flutes are typically sold as new not used. Also, those are typically sold by sellers in China. That case was a style used by Yamaha for a while. With used flutes, it's a good idea to be sure that it is in good working order. I'd suggest getting it checked over by a flute repair tech in your area. The tech can also confirm if it is a genuine Yamaha or not...

How about this one? Should I buy it?

Im freaking out after reading you guys comments!
Dear keinle;
I would like to buy same flute from the same seller which you illustrated on the below message. I want to know whether you bought it or not. I wanna be sure that is original authentic yamaha. The price is really cheap.

Thanks so much
