Mine is 4FGCC-E - late 2014.
Meeting to buy a 2007 mcspadden ginger labeled gwr
I thought I had that McSpadden code worked out but this must be Ginger (g) Walnut (w) back & sides, Redwood (r)Top. Should have a couple more letters though. First, # of Strings, F or S (flat head or Scroll head), Shape (h Hourglass t teardrop), then type of wood for side & back, then type of wood for top). the letters for custom fittings.
Have i got this right?
Nellie -- without seeing the pictures you are looking at we simply cannot tell anything about the instrument. Post the pictures here so we can help.
You said: "Is wr walnut and redwood? If that is true than not plywood so should not darken?"
Plywood does not darken compared to solid wood in any scenario I've seen in over 60 years as a woodworker.
Hi, I am supposed to meet someone about 1.5 hours away and the pictures look good except the back of dulcimer at booth ends looks somewhat darkened. Is this wear from playing? Is wr walnut and redwood? If that is true than not plywood so should not darken? Little lost here. Been trying to buy a good used ginger for quite a while now.
