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.
Lovely! Is it yours?
