This beautiful instrument finally arrived in Sweden. It sounds as good as it looks. So far it has handled every modal tuning I've thrown at it without a problem (the 12-gague melody strings help with the lower A and G tunings). Having all the extras, like a gig bag, wood oil, a clip on tuner, pick and noter were a nice touch.

Return customer, happy and satisfied -again! Many thanks, Jack!!!

This instrument is a thing of beauty!! I am going to my first dulicmer festival with it next month! Thanks, Jack! You are totally awesome!!

Absolutely Beautiful! I am very pleased with my handcrafted dulcimer. It came as described and exceeded my expectation in both craftsmanship and attention to detail. I highly recommend considering Jack Ferguson's dulcimers if you are looking for a well made instrument at a fair price. Thank You, Gil S.

Very excited about the beautiful mountain dulcimer that Jack hand-crafted for me! It's everything I had anticipated and more :) Highly recommend Jack because he is very knowledgable, nice and reliable - he follows through on everything he tells you. What's more, he has a wonderful attitude! Thanks, Jack, for your fabulous work and for making my experience buying a dulcimer such a pleasure!!!
