    Caution to UU people buying/selling on a WTB ad

    I’ll just add that having recently interacted with Brock (I sold him my Moore Bettah at a fair market price we were both happy with) I found him to polite, honest, prompt to pay and highly enthusiastic about high-end ukes. Based on my experience, no-one at UU need have any concerns dealing with him.
