The guitar is a six-stringed instrument that adapts to many different styles, from jazz to country to rock and roll. Instruments like the guitar, with strings and a long neck with frets on it, have been around for almost 5,000 years. In 40 AD, the Romans had an instrument called the cithara that very closely resembles today's guitar. The next big development came in the 1930's, when electric guitars first hit the scene.
