I managed to purchase this 1995 McSpadden SS-W on E-Bay last night. It's signed by George Looney, the seller says. I am looking forward to receiving it soon! I think I got a pretty good deal at $178 plus S&H. (If I got fleeced, don't tell me!)
I immediately ordered Madeline MacNeil's "Mel Bay You Can Teach Yourself Dulcimer" from Amazon, not that I'm anxious to get started or anything.
