Got such a kind response to the photos, thought I'd post a short version of the YT video putting it through its paces. 25" 2-piece stacked heel maple neck with embedded carbon rod, maple fingerboard with custom inlay position markers, cbgitty single-coil strat-style pickup, single volume control treble-bleed tone circuit and genuine Las Vegas souvenir poker chips control. Strings are the top four of a standard set

Retirement? I've heard of that :-) BTW, had a brain cramp about how-tos. I photodocument many stages of most builds on my FB - roughcutguitars. Have to dig down a bit but the dulcimer is worth it.

thanks Dave, pick (whoever you are :-), Jim and all! Paradox, yes. I like having fun with words, and I put a lot more tome into making these humble boxes than I do playing. Wish I could do more how-to's, but have to ditch my full-time first :-)
