When, Where, Who invented the guitar?

The guitar is believed to have originated in Babylonia, somewhere around 1900-1800 BC, after finding plaques depicting figures playing instruments, some looking somewhat like the guitar. The guitar continued developing as it went through different cultures such as Egypt, Rome, Medieval Europe, and many others. The guitar was first seen as having only two strings, and after changing to a four string, and then a five string, the six string guitar finally came along in the 18th century. Now that's a whole lot of evolving!

I told you it was brief.
