It looks very good Nathina. It is pretty much what a new Jim Good dulcimer looked like on his sale table. For some reason I'm under the impression that Jim sold his workshop and inventory a while back, but I'm not certain about this. I remember when Jim started using walnut shells in his sound holes. Jim's wife is Brenda, but I don't know if she ever painted on any of their dulcimers. Post fire of 83 when he went to walnuts for sound holes.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
I was informed by a friend that knows him and Brenda. Her maiden name was cooper, and she occasionally enhanced specially made dulcimers, for who I don't know. His new ones post 83 look like he was making an extension of the fret or soundboard that looked like a violin chin rest apparently. Quite attractive. Since this is an "enhanced" dulcimer, I was hoping to find out more on its history. He hid his name well inside. Used an endoscope to find it.
