This is an antique harp guitar with nylon strings. Hard to age but roughly 100 years old. I bought this from Germany over a decade ago along with a similar instrument. Setup is 6 fretted strings and 6 suspended'harp' strings.
Brilliant for early music or as an ornament. Needs a little attention on setup but it does have a beautiful tone. I used this instrument in concert a couple of time an certainly was a feature point! Tuning I used on this instrument was EBGDAD, C#BAGF#D, high to low.
If you are interested in music for this instrument then I have a few scores that I'd be happy to supply with as well. Any questions then please ask.
