Yeah - I don't get the sellers that won't let you see things ahead of time or take photos on request. I was in communication with a lady selling a Le Domino banjo uke, which has a small resonator that detaches by removing one bolt. She would not, under any circumstances, unscrew the bolt to look at the interior condition. I walked her through how to do it, but she was convinced it would 'kill the value'. In the end, the seller she had lined up wouldn't give her what she wanted, and she ended up selling it for about 100 less than it might have gotten.

You can hardly ever save people from a self-inflicted case of the stupids.
