The guzheng, also spelled gu zheng or gu-zheng is a Chinese plucked zither. The modern-day guzheng is a plucked half-tube zither with movable bridges and 21 strings. However, the number of strings may range anywhere from 15 to 25. The strings were formerly made of twisted silk, but at the turn of the 20th century most players used metal strings.

Instruments of the lute family always had the highest importance in musical circles from the end of the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries.
