The “Flaming Guitar” is a string instrument, like a guitar, made out of wood, glue, fishing line and paint.

It is a member of the string family because plucking the strings causes them to vibrate producing its sound.

Some of the strings are tighter than others, producing a high sound. The loose strings produce a low sound.

If you look closely at the top of this guitar, it is carved to look like the flames painted on the body of the instrument.
