Post pictures and videos of weird and wonderful instruments related to the guitar. Traditional instruments like the erhu, oud, sitar, lute and balalaika are quite welcome, as are many-necked monsters.

Should probably avoid any standard electric or acoustic guitars, as well as your standard 7, 8, 9+ string guitars (unless there's actually something particularly unique about them) and basses, as they belong in their respective forums.

I'll get the ball rolling;
3 necked 'harp' guitar
Brahms guitar


EDIT: and please name your links when you post them.

Stay classy, pit.

Would a member of the viol family count? They're like fretted violins/violas/cellos/double basses, and they usually have six strings. In fact, a company called Togaman makes electric and acoustic viols intended for guitarists that are tuned like guitars. Unfortunately, they cost a shitload.

This is a viol:



The frets are a little hard to see, but they're there.

This is a GuitarViol (one of the electric models, natch):

Pipa, played live.

It's one of the most relaxing songs ever.

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

The piece they play at 2 minutes is one of my favorite classical guitar compositions ever.
Check out my band Disturbed

what's the second one supposed to be, a mandolin and a tenor guitar?
