I have a Fred Martin. It was my first one. Intonation good up to about the 10th fret. Mine's mahogany and sounds really good to my ears. Hard to say the value. Just an observation based on stopping at Fred's for a few years. Seems the better ones of his have 4 soundholes. He had one wall full he wouldn't let me play because they were for those who really didn't want to play the dulcimer, just wanted to have one.
2 videos using the Fred.
