Details:Guitars and other modern stringed instruments evolved from two ancient types of musical instruments. The origin of these instruments go back to at least 3000 BC, the beginning of recorded history. The ?rst were harp-like instruments such as the lyre where many strings were tied over an open space like a gourd bowl or a tortoise shell, or strung from a bowl up to a crossbar. The second type was a stick to which a few strings were attached at the top and bottom. Small gourds were attached to the sticks to increase the volume and improve the sound. The difference between the two is signi?cant. Instruments with necks allowed musicians to create different notes by pressing the strings down at different points on the neck. But the width of the stick-like necks limited the number of strings; sometimes only a single string and rarely more than three or four.
