In Portuguese and Spanish, the term requinto literally means a higher-pitched version of an instrument, and the standard requinto guitar is nearly 20% smaller than a standard sized guitar. Popular in Latin America and Spain, requintos feature six strings like a guitar, but the requinto strings are tuned four notes higher than a standard guitar’s tuning, making the typical tuning A-D-G-C-E-A. The requinto guitar can be strummed or played for melody.
