Strumdrop 6-string mando build

Just made a new form for my Strumdrop stick dulcimers. I'm making them a little larger now. Anyway, been a while since I've contributed anything to the site. So I thought I'd share a build-a-long blog.

My plans for this build are:

Old growth Redwood soundboard from George Beckwith.

Black Walnut back and neck.

Birdseye rock maple sides, fingerboard and headstock overlay.

6-string using mandolin tailpiece

Custom Randy Bretz piezo rod bridge/saddle

13 inch…
