Got this at a garage sale.
Ive seen 6-string dulcimers before, but always 3 PAIRS of strings.
This one has six even spaced slots, and the strings are all different sizes, like a guitar.

Can't imagine anybody with tiny enough fingers to note them individually.
And, while the fingerboard IS dead flat, the action is so high that I could stack 2 American quarters and a penny under the strings.

My guess is that it was lovingly made by someone who did not read ALL the instructions, OR who was going to tune it to an open chord and play it like a slide guitar.

Comments and guesses invited.

Perhaps I shall replace the top nut and bridge.
