I've been vaguely thinking about selling my TV PAL. Would that be of interest?

it's quite tidy, I had to fix one of the hole strings on the bridge but it works fine now.

Let me know if of interest and I'll post some pics and think about price if so...

There quite fun but have a distinctive placky sound that you may or may not like. Plus the tuning is a bit of an art.

I'd be looking for about 60 posted for the TV Pal.

TBH you might be better off with a cheap 'normal' uke - like a Makala Dolphin or something. They sound ok and don't owe you anything if they get damaged.

Or there's always the modern plastic ukes. Like these:
