I had never seen these before. Very cool for Turkish and Middle eastern Music.

What the. The second guitar reminds me of Jaws from James Bond.

Lily Afshar who is a Prof in Memphis also has recordings on microtonal guitars. As an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIoTXde6s40 (just extracts as it is an interview). Her name has turned up here on many occasions and in many contexts.

The microtonal guitar is also very suitable to play Western music!
Listen to Stefan Gerritsen, playing Bach on a 31 tone guitar build by Dirk Janssen from Waalre (The Netherlands). Starting at 6:48.

I have a fretless nylon classical guitar only recently acquired does this qualify as potentially mictrotonal.
