The Lacôte Décacorde and Heptacorde:
Multi-string Guitars, Extended Range Guitars, Bass Guitars or Harp Guitars?

by Gregg Miner



Update: October 2021

IN MEMORIAM: It was with great sadness that I recently learned of the death of guitar expert Bruno Marlat in December 2019. Though he did not contribute directly to this article, his work is quoted generously throughout. His wife Catherine informs me that she hopes to finish and publish the monograph on Lacôte that they have been working for many years. (She has begun with this new article on Erik Hofmann's publications web site.)
