Price $399 plus $25 shipping (within lower 48 US states)

I usually only make flathead style dulcimers for custom orders. But lately I've been getting increasing demand for these so thought I would build a few for stock. This is a very nice example with a rare bookmatched Birdseye Maple top and bookmatched Walnut back and sides. The layered Walnut fretboard has 16 nickel silver frets (including a 6½, and 13½ frets) with a full two octave range and Mother-of-Pearl position markers . The gold Grover 14:1 gear ratio Sta-Tite tuning keys are set in a headstock with matching Birdseye Maple overlay.  This dulcimer also features an internal piezo pickup with gold hardware, including strap buttons. Very nice dulcimer at an excellent price.

The Juniper top on this dulcimer has a very distinctive coloration that reminds me of flames coming up from the bottom of the dulcimer with the cream color above looking like smoke. I am always extremely happy to find these types of natural colorations and usually try to hold them for deluxe style dulcimers such as this.
The sides and back are bookmatched Walnut and the layered fretboard 16 nickel silver frets (including a 6½ and 13½ frets) with Mother of Pearl position markers. The gold Grover tuners are matched with gold hardware for the internal pickup and strap buttons.
This dulcimer has a nice, full sound.

This is a unique TK dulcimer because it has a Spalted Walnut top. I've seen hundreds of TK dulcimers but never one like this.  Very nice coloring in the top although the pictures are inadequate to show it. The sound of this dulcimer is also warmer than typical TK dulcimers - I wood describe it as a "woody" type tone.  Nice dulcimer.
