Quality wood in just the right sizes for a builder with minimal tools to make a dulcimer that is truly one of a kind. Also great accessories and supplies to make said instrument complete.
This black walnut fretboard is beautiful. Its long enough to cut a bit from the end to fit the project perfectly. Perfect tuning with the frets installed.
I’ve received nothing but high quality merchandise from Folkcraft. I’ll be sticking with them!
I mainly make acoustic guitars so I am more accustomed to a higher grade soundboard material than what I received. Non quartersawn, with numerous pitch pockets, lower grade spruce is what I got. Very clean glue joint though. I did not expect perfectly clear arch top master grade spruce, but I did expect a better grade material than what was received. Paint grade and needs to be discounted by 50% IMO.
I have never had anything but the finest service from Folkcraft! Every purchase I have made has been without flaw..and has reached me quickly, often ahead of schedule. It follows that the kerfling was perfect for my new dulcimer. It makes me look good!
