Does anyone know who made the dulcimer that Bill Clinton gave to Pope John Paul II, now Saint John Paul II and what year was this done?

According to the Spring 2011 issue of Dulcimer Players News (volume 37, number 2), the Clintons provided McSpadden dulcimers to many world leaders including the dulcimer that was presented to Pope John Paul.

The article in DPN was written by Larry Conger.
