Yes that is my mother! Glad to hear she found you!
Keith Johnson Dulcimer
Yes. It was signed on the inside. It says “Mountain Dulcimer # 90, Made By Keith Johnson, Sporting Hill, PA 1/88.” I have been in contact with his daughter and recently his granddaughter. His daughter told me he was, by trade, an engineer, and that he is deceased.
I had a Keith Johnson hourglass which I sold to another member here. It was well made and sounded good. Mine had handmade pegs instead of geared tuners. I enjoyed it while I had it, and its new owner enjoys it now.
Was your’s signed on the inside, and was there any other information given, or do you know anything else about Mr. Johnson?
I recently purchased this dulcimer on an online auction. It is signed in pencil as “Mountain Dulcimer by Keith Johnson, Sporting Hill, PA-1988”.
i just wondered if anyone ever heard of him, or if he might be a member here.
There was a sales receipt in the case that shows it was purchased by a former owner at a music shop In Campbelltown, PA for 174.00. I picked it up for 85.00.
