Ah, she is a beauty. Completed in June 2013, big tex was built with one of my favorite sorts of tins. This is my third concert scale ukulele using a Collin Street Bakery tin with the double Texas Bluebonnet on the lid, but this is the first and only one using the big ten inch tin. It’s got a loud voice and a loud neck tie strap.
- tin: 10 x 3 1/4 in.
- scale: 380 mm, 15 in.
- head to tail: 650 mm, 25 1/4 in.
- G .010, C .015, E .011, A .008
- maple neck
- cocobolo fret board
- silk neck tie strap
This instrument was snapped up by a resident the great state of Texas as a tin wedding anniversary gift (that’s the 10th anniversary in case you were wondering). Thanks again D. Your purchase made all this fooling around so much more worth it.
