Davis Fiddle-Shaped

Many of these dulcimers were sold, a fair proportion as kits.  The ones built by Davis are usually signed on the lower bout (as this is) and have either better quality woods or more elaborate decoration on the headstock.  Solid walnut body, with nice figuring throughout.  Rosewood cap on endblock to prevent damage to softer walnut; stainless screws as string anchor.  One piece walnut fingerboard, hollowed out inside for extra volume.  F-hole design with triangular centre for soundholes in lower bout, simple pair of circular holes in upper bout.  Overall length 39”, upper bout 7”, lower bout 7¼”, shallow body 1½”, FBW 1½”, VSL 28″ (medium/long scale), weight 2lb 7oz or 1114g.  No 6½ fret.
