'Twould seem to me that if it IS a real Presnell dulcimer, it would not be anonymous, but have a label inside it to identify things. The Presnells usually marked their products, didn't they? And one might check with The Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Brevard, NC. They're still in business, and have a craft/gift shop as well.
Does anyone think this is an Edd Presnell dulcimer?
That is the question, being told they think it's an Edd Presnell, but from what I've been seeing, Presnell dulcimers look to be hour glass shape, this is that fiddleside type.
To me it looks much more like a Bill Davis, but it doesn't have the edge that sticks out over the side, (Can't recall what that's called), like Davis's others, also there is no signature inside or engraved on the back like his others.
The only thing they are basing the Presnell call on it, is a business card they found with it, see photos.
