Here`s another one of my unique stringed instruments. Its a 4 string lap stlye dulcimer made from a hollow butternut tree limb, the top wood is hemlock. This instrument is filled with bone, deer antler, wood and butternut shell carvings. If you look through the soundhole you can see the ground, there`s a large open knot hole on the bottom at the back of the instrument. I also installed a piezo pickup in it so it can be plugged into my amp. It has a natural arm rest on the back.
