Guitars Santiago Cuatro

Belonging to the "lute" family, this instrument's graceful baroque body has been revered for decades as the national instrument of Puerto Rico. It is played with a flat pick and sounds like a cross between a 12-string guitar and a mandolin. It has 10 strings in five courses. It's tuned from low to high B-E-A-D-G, with the B and E in octaves and A-D-G tuned in unison.
