GUEST,Willie-O mandocello type instrument (10) RE: mandocello type instrument 17 Mar 02


Giannini (Brazilian guitar co.) made sort of lute-shaped classical guitars for quite a while.

If it has six strings and a guitar fingerboard, and is tuned in fourths, it's a guitar, no matter what shape the body. Git-banjos excluded, they are an abomination ;)=

But if it has twelve strings, its a cittern, not a twelve-string.

I think. Got to go figure now....

W-O
