I am thinking about purchasing a Frank Hodges, Boone North Carolina dulcimer and was wondering about the bottom construction for stringing. It has a large knob on the bottom where all the strings loop around the knob and since I only have a photo and am new at stringing, I didn't know if that would keep the strings spaced properly. It's a 70's peg head and I have see seen many pics of vintage dulcimers but not with the large knob on the bottom. I'm afraid it may be difficult to string and hold spacing. Thanks for helping.
Kris is now Kris Jackson. Seekingvintage@hughes.net. I have two of hers she sold me recently.
Would anyone know how to contact Kris Hansen. Just would like to compliment her about our well crafted dulcimer that she made back in 1981. Could not find any current info and thought someone may know her personally. Thanks.
