Russian 7-String Guitar

The 7-string guitar was popular in Russia from around 1800 well into the twentieth century. Most of the music is for solo guitar. Arrangements of folk songs, as well as variations sets, comprise the bulk of the repertoire. The tuning was in open G: from low to high strings D-G-B-d-g-b-d'.
