    Default NUD vintage plastic ukulele

    Just got this cutie to display as decoration, since it’s winter (low humidity) and I don’t leave my wood ukuleles out. It is obviously terrible for playing. The first and second strings are actually one string wrapped around the “saddle.” Same with the third and fourth string(s).

    Anyone else want to share photos of their little plastic vintage ukuleles?

    That's about as easy to tune as a hammered dulcimer with a warped bridge...

    You canít see it in my original photo but the top of the ukulele is warped and there is glue visible along the side edges where the top meets. Ask for many photo angles when purchasing one of these. I donít mind iron this vintage plastic ukulele because I got it cheap enough and it wasnít claimed to be in mint condition.
    Will post more photos later.
