Yessir! I bought it at Bone Island in 2012. It's a screamer! Love it! Missed you by minutes at the Studios. Dang it. Thank you for what you do.

No problem, Mike. Feel free to "adapt" away. Always good to add on a new friend.

So you just take a hacksaw and cut straight down the screw to create a channel for the string?

thanks.  I'd love to see it.

Hi Catfish,

You liked my diagram of the Flying "V" Dulcimer. So, I thought you'd also like to read the build write-up I've done so far. That URL (link) is here:

http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/HMRB101/forum/topics/my-flying-v-dulcimer-project

The project is kind of on hold after I managed to gouge my thumb with a chisel. But I suspect I'll be back to finish it in the coming weeks. When I do, I'll post more at the above link.

-Rand.

Thanks Mike, really appreciate the great comment on The Logjammer, and thanks for the Nation friendship. Have a great Christmas
