It's a travel guitar, not for children.  It has Brazilian rosewood back and sides and is a perfect miniature guitar; not a toy.  Tuned an octave above standard tuning.  It's difficult for me to play, but someone with slender fingers would do well.

A children guitar perhaps?? Or a quart guitar....tuned in A!

It is from the Schuman Collection at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Oregon. I perform on instruments from the collection occasionally.  I'm not sure how I might use this one yet.  Maybe some little duets.  It's adorable, and fits nicely in a small violin case.
