Grajabpi

The "grajabpi" ( _th. กระจับปี่) is a plucked, fretted lute of Thailand, used in central Thai classical music. It is made jackfruit or teak wood, and it has four strings in two courses that are plucked with a plectrum. It usually has a long decorative wooden "tail." [http://www.thaitambon.com/thailand/Kanchanaburi/710110/02110133119/710110-A305.jpgphoto] It is one of the oldest Thai classical instruments and has been little used since the 20th century.
