The development of the guitar instrument

The history of the guitar also includes developments in the instrument. Before 1600, a fifth string was added to the guitar before it was increased to six in the late 18th century. From this came chords such as E-A-D-G-B-E.

In addition to the rays, the development of the guitar also occurred on the tuning pegs. In the 19th century, the original knotted frets were replaced with ivory or metal frets built in the 18th century.

Not only that, the position of the fingerboard was also raised slightly above belly level and designed to widen to the edge of the sound hole. The body of the guitar is shaped wider and shallower with very thin sound papas to create increased sonority.
