Edsel Martin mountain dulcimer purchased for me by my wife in late 1996 at a craft store in Old Fort, NC, near Edsel's home. I have only played it a few times over the years but it is an excellent instrument and a really beautiful piece of folk art.
It can be strung with 4 equidistant strings, or 4 string with double-melody string, or 3 string. It has a beautiful carved headstock with a mountain woman's head, the sound holes are hearts and a cross is carved into the strum hollow. Edsel's signature is carved into the back of the peg head with the date June 96. Like new condition - includes a soft shell case. $600 plus $45 for shipping in CONUS.
