No, not mine but in nice shape, and a decent opening price of $9.99. ;)

Nice shape??

Did you see the second picture? It looks like the back is warped from fire.

Krusty the Clown musta been smoking in bed again or perhaps making soup in it at the campfire.

I don't think that it's warped, those multi-hued swirls were all the rage back in the day.

Yup, I got two of them, and that funky psychedelic plastic was standard issue.
Good luck Danielle, I hope you win. ;)

Maybe he was just trying to throw off the competition with the "warped" comment, lol.

I am bidding on another one right now. If I don't win the one I have my eye on, perhaps this one will be next, though I really would prefer an Islander Deluxe or Semi Deluxe.

It's tempting, but I'm trying really hard to stay on the wagon... I'm almost completely out of excuses to but another ukulele.

That's one cool uke, and I love the back. Looks LSD inspired. :)

What to look for on these Plastic 'Ukes? Are any real 'players'? or mostly wall-hangers?

Check out member UKISOCIETY on youtube, he plays 'em for real.

The Maccaferri made plastic 'ukuleles were made as serious playing instruments and are the most sought after.
