Have you ever wondered what a guitar with harp strings looks like? It is safe to say that most people probably haven’t. However, if you’re thinking about it now, wonder no more; it actually exists!
The harp guitar is an instrument of many strings. It sounds very much like a typical guitar, but the excess of strings allow harp-style plucking. These guitars originated in the early 1770’s in Paris. They continued to be manufactured throughout the years, but they are generally a “rare” instrument. You don’t see them played too often, and they aren’t seen much in popular music, but that doesn;t make them any less wonderful.
