Guadagnini TerzinaTerz guitar

The terz guitar is a small size (classical) guitar , which is tuned a minor third higher than a normal guitar (top string in g').

The terz guitar was popular in Vienna round 1800 and especially with composers like Giuliani and Diabelli.

Of course to get the same tuning you could also put a capodastre on the 3th fret of a normal guitar.
