    If you're looking for a "deal," don't hold your breath. There are lots of new ones on eBay for around $200, generally with the plastic fretboard. There's only one used one for $375. Your best bet is to contact Magic Fluke, bite the bullet, and order the exact one you want. If you buy one with the plastic fretboard, Magic Fluke will replace it with a wooden one for $79 plus tax.

    EDIT: I've found concert to be the ideal Magic Fluke size for me - in any of their instruments.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Not looking for a deal necessarily, but prefer to buy used.

    I second that!

    I own three Fleas (soprano red, tenor green, soprano Koa) and two Flukes (mahogany and a standard with plastic fretboard and the flower decoration), right now. And I can‘t think of any reason to let one go, as all are getting played more or less regularly - the red mostly by my daughter. The standard Fluke I use for work, in a day nursery with kids up to three years. Only this one shows any use on the frets. Apparently, the little kids use quite a bit of force to let the strings slap back against the fretboard - that‘s why I still have the mahogany Fluke wth the wooden fretboard as a backup there.
    The tenor FLea in green has a wooden fretboard, too, and a pickup. And I use it for stage performances. The Koa then, is my everyday uke, it‘s just lying around here at home, so I can grab it any time.
    All are marvelous instruments. And I won‘t sell any of them.

    They really are. I recently purchased and sold what I thought was “my one,” a kanile’a. I found myself lining for a fluke again. Lesson learned

    Now the decision is what color? Lol

    Thank you for sharing about your MFC instruments.

    They have nice designer choices, and you can always have them put the graphic of your choice onto the top. They do both laser and color printing. As a matter of fact, they will send you a top if you want an artist to paint it.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!
