I know exactly where Warsaw is, but if you blink you'll miss it!

Good luck with it!  I see you live down in Wilmington.  I grew up in Warsaw, NC, if you know where that is!  Lived in Raleigh for many years after that...

Peace... hope to see some pictures of your finished instrument!

Yeah I'm gonna design and build my own - just looking at images for ideas.  Love your music!

Hi Vick -- synchronicity!

As far as I know, there aren't many folks making solid body dulcimers out there in the world.  As far as I know, aside from me, there's also Tom Yocky  (I own a Yocky -- solidly made, though the single coils can be noisy in some environments as all single coils tend; in my case, I replaced the pickups with a single humbucker, though you could also probably go for some quieter single coils and shielding...).  His plank style inspired my own build.

Quintin Stephens down in Houston makes them too, but his shop burned down and I'm not sure where he stands now (thought I know some folks for whom he's recently made stuff).  

You can see my electric in action in some of the videos I've post here, or over on my band's website or my own.

I just discovered you guys this morning scouring the intarwebs for research on solid body dulcimers and now here's your picture at "the clubhouse."  Very cool.
