Default The original harp guitar?

Sorry if this is old news but it's a great description and great playing.

Love me some Theorbo. Such a lovely instrument, imaging having to tune and carry that around?

Heh, I figured it would be this video, it popped up in my YouTube feed as well. I also had the same thought about it being similar to a harp guitar.

Interesting, I never heard of this instrument! There's a modern reproduction for sale, I don't have 6K burning a hole in my pocket but it would be fun to learn to play. https://reverb.com/item/17957685-pas...o-1992-natural

What do you mean, I can't carry this onto the plane.

Really beautiful instrument though. I stumbled upon some videos of them a few years ago.
