I have several dulcimers and have bought and sold on eBay several times. However, there is nothing available now that interests me for the right valued price. A Philly Folk Fest buddy keeps asking me questions about purchasing a dulcimer, so I decided to gift him one for his 60th birthday. However, I am coming up empty. I partial to Folkcraft made during the CT days, but open to consider McSpadden, Cedar Creek, Musical Traditions, etc. Just want to make sure instrument is from a reputable luthier. Also must have 6 1/2 fret. 13 1/2 would be nice, but not critical. Prefer hourglass, but would consider teardrop. Must be four stings . . . option for equidistant stringing would be nice. Also don't want the VSL either too short or long. Yes, I know . . . I have a lot of asks . . . but if you have something you are interested in selling that matches my description, please let me know..
