It took him three months and about $600 to build the oversized instrument and he admits it’s not “quite as melodic” as a regular ol’ ukulele. Watch this video to HEAR what it sounds like:

    It sounds like ukulele became an adult and spoke in a deep voice. My love for the ukulele increased by exactly 13 feet (later I’ll try to count volume). Bravo, Larry Stump, it was a big idea! A little too big for a small guitar, but it’s cute. Thank you, Pee-wee !!!
