Oooh, I LOVE plastic Ukuleles but here in the UK they don't seem to be so common. I did however come very close to buying a Maccaferri Islander last week, it was a repair to the nut which put me off, plus of course the fact it was 100 which I thought a little steep due to the repair and not having it's box or anything.
My favourite Ukulele Youtubers are Gus and Fin of GUGUG and Gus regularly plays a TV Pal. This is his plastic video collection. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVgfyleW2Q4 Have a look, it's quite impressive. Have a look at their Ramones and Buzzcocks covers too, they're my favourite vids on YouTube.

Cheers,
Ian.
