Cuban Laud - The 12 String Guitar From Cuba

The Cuban laud is a 12 string instrument originally from the Arabic ood, although it is much changed since then and bears little resemblance today.

The main use of the instrument historically was playing punto guajiro music which was traditionally played in the Western provinces and usually in 3/4 or 6/8 time.
