Lap Dulcimers and Fretless Banjos Hand crafted by Dick Gilman
A retired geology professor, Dick has been making lap dulcimers and fretless banjos part time for the past 30 years. Inspired by the plans from Foxfire, each instrument is individually built with several choices of materials and style available to the customer. While a few instruments are generally in stock, instruments built to specific requests may take up to several weeks to complete.
