[Gibson County Dulcimer #1]
The current owner purchased this instrument at an antique store in Trenton, Gibson County, Tennessee. The manager of the store knew nothing of this dulcimer's origin.
The top of the instrument was taken off at some point, then reattached via nailing, not gluing. No indication of the builder is present. The instrument also has no internal bracing. Nonetheless, it is deeply resonant, and the frets are positioned so as to produce a true scale.
