The guzheng, also known as the Chinese zither, is a Chinese plucked string instrument with a more than 2,500-year history. It used to have 16 (or more) strings and movable bridges. The modern guzheng usually has 21 strings, and is 64 inches (1.63 m) long. It has a large, resonant cavity made from paulownia wood. Other components are often made from other woods for structural or decorative reasons. Guzheng players often wear fingerpicks on one or both hands. The guzheng is ancestral to several other Asian zithers such as the Japanese koto, the Korean gayageum, Mongolian yatga, and the Vietnamese đàn tranh. The guzheng should not be confused with the guqin, a Chinese zither with 7 strings played without movable bridges. The guzheng has gone through many changes during its long history. The oldest specimen yet discovered held 13 strings and was dated to around 500 BCE, possibly during the Warring States period (475–221 BCE). The guzheng became prominent during the Qin dynasty (221–206 BCE). By the Tang Dynasty (618–907 CE) the guzheng may have been the most commonly played instrument in China.
