Well, Thomas. My guitar/zither (I don't know what else to call it) has five strings on a fretboard like a guitar with two dots at the fifth fret, two dots at the ninth fret, two dots at the twelfth fret, one dot at the fifteenth fret, and two at the seventeenth fret. The first three strings are unwound. The next two are sound. It then has twenty seven strings. Thefirst six are unwound, the rest are wound in various gages.

It has a round soundole and a flowery pattern around it with Concurrenz Concert-Ziher on the sound board. It needs new strings but is otherwise in excellent shape. PM me if you are serious.

Perhap Rita Ferrara can tell us something about how to play it. I am getting interested myself,with this discussion.

love, harpgirl
