The Big Palangi's 'Ukulele

Serial #: SWWBMT02

Model #: UMCTL10

This tenor 'ukulele is being built for a good friend, Eric H. Aka: The Big Palangi, aka: The Big Easy, aka: Hazy, aka: The Big E, aka: A Big Gay Man, for a definition of "gay" please see below;

gay   /ge…™/ Show Spelled [gey] Show IPA adjective, -er, -est, noun, adverb

–adjective

1. having or showing a merry, lively mood: gay spirits; gay music.

2. bright or showy: gay colors; gay ornaments.

3. given to or abounding in social or other pleasures: a gay social season.

The Big E is a gay old rogue with an eye for the ladies alright, hopefully with this new custom hand built 'uke, he'll be able to show his gayness to every lady or person who is fortunate enough to meet this extravagant fellow with a big heart.
 
Here is a picture of it's humble beginnings.
