It's a pedal steel guitar.
I can understand that anyone not American or interested in country music might not know that but it's worrying that anyone might think it was a dulcimer or a zither 😳

It's a steel or Hawaiian guitar. It's basically an electric guitar built into a table, tuned to a G major chord and with no frets. You use a steel roller (now usually called a bottleneck although strictly speaking that's a smaller gadget used in blues guitar) to hold the strings and you have finger picks to pluck them. It gives a glissando sound enhanced by a little feedback.
