Not if the seller is a scammer. For instance, here’s a recent posting that might give you some pause:
I am a new buyer of a nice violins and am looking to do a fair price. I had the violins appraised by my local violin expert here in the US and they are listed at £40,000 each (US $57,000 US, and about £22,000).

They have been sending us threatening emails and threatening Facebook messages that they are going to take the violins back. My understanding is that they are in the process of cancelling this order.
