Artefact: Saddle Guitar
Year: 1930s
Number: 94.48.01

April is international guitar month. This saddle guitar was owned by Perry Rhine Sr from 1932-1955.  A saddle guitar was meant to be small enough for the cowboy to carry around with them on long trips and cattle drives.

This is a classical style guitar.  The difference between an acoustic guitar and a classic guitar is that an acoustic has steel strings while a classical guitar has nylon strings.

International guitar month is an annual celebration of guitars and guitar products that have happened every April beginning in 1987. International guitar month was created to inspire the public to get out there and start learning guitar.
