Master luthier and designer Zachary Taylor has created this truly elegant and classic instrument the 'Guitarino'. Guitarino is the designer's Anglicisation of 'chittarino' and it's also been called the guitarra, guiterne, machete and braguinha. One of the smallest and earliest members of the guitar family, it made its appearance in the mid-16th century when several respected composers wrote for it. Taylor based his special design on a guitarino made in 1646 by Giovanni Smit. Smit's instrument is currently on display in the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna. Some features of that original one were changed for practical reasons. The Smit has an arched back made of separate strips, similar to the lute, but this feature was replaced with a flat back to reduce production time. Separate strips were retained for the sake of decoration but some costly cosmetic ornaments were excluded as they contributed little to the guitarino's sound or functionality. Originally, strings and frets were made of gut, which were tied around the neck. Tied frets represent a strong reference to the original instrument but are sometimes troublesome. Changes in humidity, temperature, and clumsy handling can cause changes in the fret location, making replacement difficult for an inexperienced player. For these reasons, the designer, maker and suppliers decided on metal frets as a standard feature. When used in the guitaristic sense, the word 'course', refers to more than one single string and possibly as many as three. A common modern example may be seen in the mandolin and bouzouki. On the guitarino, two strings in a course may be tuned in unison or in octaves. Where octaves are used for the lower strings, usually one of the strings is tuned an octave higher than the normal, fundamental, string. Various tuning methods of the Renaissance guitar are known, but it was decided to offer this wonderful instrument with its pairs tuned in unison. Interestingly, near the end of the 19th century,
