Thread Name: So, what became of the lyre?
Subject: RE: So, what became of the lyre?
Okay, here's a question: if a lyre has strings arranged like a harp, but uses the techology of the guitar for sound production, how is a "harp guitar" different from a lyre, the tuning pegs?

And, Michael, I agree -- that harp mandolin looks wierd... like something the set designers for the first season of Star Trek would come up with for Spock to play... ;-)
