Yes David, Its amazing what freeing up any little part of the body does for the tone. I built a dulcimer combining 3 cigar boxes, and the neck and bridge are off the sound board. I have small 1/4" hardwood blocks that can be placed in different places under the neck that change the tone dramatically. And something very non traditional is the bridge only has contact to the top of the box. http://handmademusic.ning.com/photo/neck-off-view?context=user
