So...where does one find a Gibson Dulcimer?

 hi, ms chitwood - don't know if you saw the replies to your 'for sale' thread  before it was taken down, but i was one of the folks that wrote back as soon as i saw gary gallier's name.  i believe i've wanted to play one of his dulcimers the first time i heard one - hearing him play at kentucky music week last summer in a classroom setting intensified that desire quite a bit. 

if you do decide to sell the star song, i hope you let the dulcimer community know - don't know much about ebay sales, but i would love an opportunity to acquire this dulcimer - as, i expect, would numerous other players and performers. 

good luck. i hope whatever direction you go with this is an easy path.       alan kolman
