Arch Guitar

We saw this guy yesterday -- 

very interesting classical guitar on his 11 and 12 string instrument

What is an archguitar?

The archguitar is a modern instrument designed by Peter Blanchette and Walter Stanul in 1980. Archguitars can have from 9 to 11 strings, giving them a much larger musical range than 6-string guitars. Most of Blanchette's recordings are of baroque, renaissance and modern classical music, though the instrument lends itself well to all acoustic styles.
