It is a cool-looking dulcimer and probably has a sound to match yet the asking price does seem steep.
Strumelia mentioned vintage Lapidus dulcimers being in a different universe. . . From the few instruments I've seen from her (vintage or no), I understand her statement. (On JLapidus's latest recording, her Pelican dulcimer sounds so good!)
