Ok, it's not a guitar...

But it is a very interesting fretted instrument (not a banjo):

A good mate is a classical guitarist (and teacher and composer) and, for a good while he owned and played IIRC Renascence Lute. I can see why the Theorbo came into existence, the Lute is a very quiet, subtle instrument suited to drawing rooms not theatres.

It's a shame it's not 13 string as that's one more than 12.
14 is just pure extravagance, showing off.

I've actually seen this one before. Honestly that thing probably has 50 strings or so and you will use 6-7 max anyway.
