La Bella Guitarra Portuguesa Strings

The Guitarra Portuguesa, or Portuguese guitarra, is a small teardrop-shaped Portuguese cittern used in “Fado” music, a music genre that can be traced to the 1820s in Portugal. It is a plucked string instrument with twelve strings in six courses.

There are two different types of Guitarra Portuguesa, Lisboa tuning and Coimbra tuning, that are distinguished by their size, heads and tunings.

La Bella provides an extra 012P plain steel string as an optional plain sixth course octave for Coimbra tuning, in replacement of the wound 018W for Lisboa tuning.

Lisboa Tuning: D3 D2, A3 A2, B3 B2, E3 E3, A3 A3, B3 B3

Coimbra Tuning: C3 C2, G3 G2, A3 A2, D3 D3, G3 G3, A3 A3
