Hi everyone. I'm doing some spring cleaning and selling off everything that doesn't get played. This is a nice pair of Maccaferri plastic ukuleles.

The Islander is in good condition with no cracks. It has the "sprocket" rosette; I don't know if that indicates what model it is. Still has its original "Styron" sticker. The body is the brownish-red swirl. One of the tuner buttons was split but has been repaired (super glue). There is one small issue on this uke: The little plastic sliver of a saddle is missing. I have a white Corian blank that I can provide ... and it's already about 75 percent shaved to the proper size. (I'll leave the rest of the shaping to the buyer, but it's easy with a flat surface and some sandpaper. I can even provide the sandpaper, if needed.)

The TV Pal is intact and is ready to string up. There is a repaired seam separation near the bottom, but it closed up cleanly and is no longer an issue.

Both ukes are complete with their original tuners. They just need strings and someone to play them. I'm asking $100 plus actual shipping for the pair.


Please PM me with any questions. Thanks!
