OK, not exactly Dead-related equipment, but there IS some cocobolo and quilted maple involved.

I just finished my second dulcimer. The first was for my daughter from a kit, this one was pretty much from scratch. Adirondack spruce top, maple sides, rosewood back, ebony fingerboard. It was a great excuse to get some tools- drill press, band saw, scroll saw, chisels, spokeshaves- and to start to learn to use them.

Awesome!! I had a roommate with one years ago, taught myself how to play "Paradise" by John Prine on it.

Nice! I like the multi-lam head and contrast of the spruce and ebony. I bet you can get some GD songs going on it...
