guess you're right. Look at the pictures http://famicom-ner38...01_archive.html there more versions that come close to you're version. Only the controllers aren't the same.
Thanks for the link Seob! I think I'm feeling even stronger that something isn't matching up with this being a famicom. In the teardown photos the back of the console shows a TV/GAME switch and a CH1/CH2 switch. Both are missing from this console and in it's place are the audio and video ports. Also the site's pictures of the controllers don't match up as controller II has a volume slide and a microphone where as this one has neither and instead includes turbo switches on controller II. Finally it just struck me that the label on the front of the console is in fact different as it is missing the logo on the far left. (looks like an "ff" on the teardown photos)

Hi, I'm Satoshi Matrix, staff member of Famicom World. What you have there is a Famicom HVC-001 box and manual, but the system itself is a Famiclone. It probbaly dates from around 1989. Open it up and chances are that's a entire discrete harcare clone, cloning each part sepertely. There's even a good chance the cloned PPU and CPU are socketed. If so, you can actually buy a REAL NES/Famicom PPU and CPU and just slot them in there. If you do, you'll essentically turn that clone into a real functional Famicom that's 100% compatable with all games!
