Owlkat Help: Guitar history (20) RE: Help: Guitar history 04 Aug 01

In my research for a paper on the history of the guitar and related stringed instruments, I found that European citterns dated to the 16th century were metal strung with iron alloyed wire strings. Before that, it was too costly and metallurgy wasn't up to the production of metal strings. Brass may have been used and I didn't find anything about Eastern instruments. Interesting.
