Benny has great passion for ukulele,  and he share the same philosophy of aNueNue “Life, Music, play” We made this one of a kind custom uke to Benny to celebrate his love!

 

The custom concept is centered on the Chinese zodiac "Tiger" and combines Benny's favorite movie story "Life of Pi" imagery, combining all the elements through the American Inlay Artist “Craig Lavin”. The headstock of this uke is engraved with the eye-catching and fierce looking of tiger, decorated with the starry night sky. 

 

The fingerboard is like a silent sea. The lonely moonlight and the reflection of rafting boat shadow in fluorescent ocean.  Also, the dim light Jellyfish is hidden beneath the ocean. The vast ocean and the fantasy theme has great contrast. The blue whales is surrounded by fluorescent lines slowly moving along.
