She did play both full width and staple frets from the mid 60's on I'm guessing. She eventually had quite a few dulcimers, from various sources.

Well actually I've seen you more on the Minstrel Banjo forum than on the dulcimer ones... just got into a new hobby that's taking way too much of my time. But, all is well here. Thanks for almost worrying --
