I'm sure you have heard this hundreds, if not thousands of times. The zither from your shop arrived the other day. It is so beautiful and so perfect I could hardly believe it! My family, who thinks I'm a little nutty, has, at my request for a gift, hunted for a zither for me for years. They have found a few expensive, inferior ones that simply would not do.
When the internet came to my town (tiny town in Central Texas), my very first "search" was for zithers. That's how I found you. The dear lady at your shop who took my order was patient beyond belief explaining the kinds of woods and colors. Well, now this wonderful instrument is here! WOW! I feel like it was made just for me by someone who really, really knows the kinds of things I like.
By the way, I've only just seen it and played on it once. My mother (whose present it is) has insisted I return it to her to wrap for my birthday. Thank goodness. That's TOMORROW!
Many, many thanks for keeping excellent craftsmanship alive. I love the wood, I love the sound, I love the smell, I love the quality. It is perfect. Thank you so much!
