    Default Plastic Fretboard for sale?

    I'm looking for a used plastic fretboard for a 1960s Harmony soprano uke for a reasonable price.

    I'd prefer either plain brown or mottled brown, but could live with one of the cream/off-white ones as well.
    No, I don't have a monstrous listing of "upscale" ukes yet, but at the moment, I consider myself fortunate to own 1 Kala Mahogany Gloss Soprano, 1 Kala Ziricote Concert, 1 cheapie Hola Zebrawood Concert (which truly has a killer sound, I mean it), 1 1950s Harmony Baritone, an early 1900s restored Robert Peartson Banjolele, and a 1922 Oscar Schmidt Tenor Banjo, ... the good news is, I'm a-pickin' and a-grinnin' each and every day!

    My wife would kill me if I took her damaged one off the wall, but I love that you want to bring one of these back to life...

    It will be interesting to see where you can source one of these from. I found a white NOS one on eBay and thought it rather expensive at circa $25. Perhaps I’ve got this all wrong but but it seems to me that if you can add vintage to an item’s description the price trebles, sometime more, but the functionality remains the same.

    Maybe a PM to some of the guys who specialise in vintage Ukes might point you in a better direction (user name Vintageukes comes to mind).

    I think I have one stashed away someplace. I’ll be away for the next week. You can have it no charge. My wife will be happy that I’m clearing things out. I’ll be in touch
