I just sent off payment for a new guitar. It'll be a while before it arrives, but I just have to tell someone about it. I'm incredibly excited, more so than I've been about a new guitar in years - decades, even.

How about we play ye olde guessing game? First hint - it is not typically seen on OSG :freako:

I’m also guessing either R9 or PRS. We don’t see either very much around here.

Edit: no judgement, I promise!

There's a theme developing to the guesses, but barking up the wrong tree.

Here's a big hint: you can't plug it in!

A bit warmer, but think "older."

Colder.

Colder, except this particular instrument shares a sense of national origin with the autoharp.

Here's a visual hint. It's highly zoomed-in, showing maybe 4 square inches of the instrument.

Getting close! And funnily enough, I'm actively hunting for a baroque 13c lute...

Also getting close, that would be super cool but I wouldn't know what to do with it.

Surprisingly, this instrument wasn't terribly expensive, but I think you've gotten as close as I could ask anyone to get. Reveal incoming...
