Turkish Guitars

The oldest known iconographical representation of an instrument displaying all the essential features of a guitar is a stone carving at Alaca Huyuk in Turkey, of a 3300 year old Hittite "guitar" with "a long fretted neck, flat top, probably flat back, and with strikingly incurved sides".

The guitar's ancestors came to Europe from Egypt and Mesopotamia, these early instruments had, most often, four strings. The word "guitar" is derived from the Old Persian "chartar", which, in direct translation, means "four strings".

One of the most well know works inspired by Turkish music, the Koyunbaba suite of 1985–86, was written by Italian guitarist/composer Carlo Domeniconi who also went on to establishing the Classical Guitar course at the Istanbul University State Consevatory
