Courting Dulcimer (Sell Or Trade)

Photo for Ad 126828

Offered for sale is a courting dulcimer built in fall 2017 by Gary Stone of Stoney End / Hobgoblin Music in Red Wing, Minnesota. Solid spruce over solid cherry. Stoney End also made the custom-fit soft case for this dulcimer, which was a significant up-charge.

This is a really nice instrument ... a bit rustic, but well-built. It just sings when it's strummed, and it articulates well when finger-picked. It has really good sustain ... really quite a live instrument.

There are not many of these double-necked courting dulcimers available for sale anywhere. Most are custom built to order (as this one was), and other builders are much more expensive than Stoney End. I purchased this thinking I could get my wife interested in learning to play music with me, but she has little / no interest. So ... back to my lonely life of solo banjo, guitar, and ukulele!

I paid $299 for the dulcimer, and $155 for the case. I am asking $350 plus actual shipping, which is quite fair (the longest it has been out of the case is to take the pictures).

7 days approval. Upon receipt of return, I reimburse sell price minus shipping. Buyer pays return shipping for returns.

Would consider trade for ukulele, tenor guitar, fretless banjo, ???

Note: I will be out of town with limited internet access from 7/17 through 7/23, so I will get back to any requests or offers ASAP, but would not be able to ship until 7/24.
