McSpadden walnut and spruce teardrop signed by Larry McSpadden in Mountain Dulcimer Instruments Posted September 5, 2020 Oops, sorry. You're right, Noter Man. It's a spruce top. Gotta stop posting late at night. I didn't know that about laminate. I thought McSpadden upgraded from laminate to solid wood backs in 2008, but I could be wrong about that too.
