My bard plays a guitar, not because she doesn’t know better, and not because she doesn't care.  She does care and that is why she plays guitar.  She is a professional musician, and we have yet to find a period instrument that passes her high standards. She owns 5 guitars and all of them cost a good deal of money. She has almost perfect pitch and cannot handle the way most period instruments sound.

medieval music was often out of tune and out of time and I would not like to see that.
