There is a pure artistry in the design and sound of every guitar, not two of them will ever be or sound quite the same. They have a proud history, legacy and development throughout the ages, with many guises and faces throughout time. The acoustic, non-electrical, variety, classical, stringed instrument  has been coming of age in recent decades and centuries.

It makes the practice of music easy, if you have the right type of instrument- intimate, personal and well-made, lovingly, masterfully played to yield beautiful sounding music. It comes as no surprise then, that if you ask most people, what this is, they would be able to point you in the direction pretty quickly. It is well-loved and recognized throughout the world as the people�s instrument. It is used to serenade, accompany, support and make merriment.

When you entrench and engross yourself in the tales or origin and history of the classical guitar, its music and playing techniques, you will quickly notice that the line can in all probability be traced via baroque models, but some of its earlier inspirations were drawn from instruments like the ancient well-loved and soothing varieties from the stringed family. the lute, vihuela, even resemblances and commonalities with the Renaissance five-string guitar.

In many ancient artifacts, pots, murals and paintings, dating back to 2000-1500 BCE, unearthed in Iran, similarities are undeniable, between what these figures are playing as sketched and what we today know and love as the guitar. It has a long and proud history of approximately 5,000 years. The Asian cithara and numerous other musical objects from earlier times, all contributed to the sound-box, with neck, strings and tuning pegs type design that we have today. Carvings and artifacts only tell some of the tale of the guitar.
