Those inlay are pre-cut. I don't know where they came from originally (maybe Germany or Italy), but were sold in the US by Vitali Imports in Southern California. I imagine the owner either did the inly him- or herself, or had it done.

Hi That looks like a D50ST, can you see a label inside?  If so , what  are the numbers?

Thanks for that. I will contact him and ask if he did inlay. My best guess is “inlay decals” of abalone. They are flush with the wood.

@gstringer, is that inlay or decals?  Looks pretty cool either way.

If they are decals, anyone could have put them on.  If it's genuine inlay, you might contact @Howard-Rugg , who is a member here and who resurrected Capritaurus Dulcimers a couple of years ago.

Recently acquired a Folk Roots teardrop dulcimer. Can’t find any similar images on the internet. Anyone seen one of these with inlay/decals?
