James I think that mentioning the bagpipe tuning in your title makes it seem like it can't be tuned like a 'regular' baritone dulcimer. Perhaps you should remove that tuning mention from your thread title.

Dusty, it could be, right now just strung for the tuning specified in my advert. The middle strings are doubled.

James, can I ask why you specify the way you have tuned this dulcimer? Couldn't it be tuned AEa or GDg or other standard baritone tunings?

It is notched doubled middle but you could do it as a 3 string.  I forgot to mention it can be A aa a as well, I just took it down a step.

This is a really nice instrument. I had the opportunity to play it. I can easily be converted to a double melody string instrument or you can play it as a three string dulcimer without changing the bridge and nut. If I'm wrong about this James, please correct me. By the way, this is a really good price and I have no financial interest in this.
