This is a maple and spruce Galax dulcimer I just finished, of the Raymond Melton type. It's new owner lives in Galax, Virginia of all places. It should feel right at home! It has the 5-Star geared tuners that are so beautiful and easy to use.
This TMB was finished today, October 5, and will be staying in Michigan. My customer wanted a traditional poplar music box with a checkerboard on the back. But he wanted it to look old. So I worked it over with my secret "bag of tricks".
