Portuguese guitar built by Avelino Coutinho, builder of "Lisbon guitars" who distinguished himself in the first quarter of the 20th century for the perfection of his instruments. Dating from 1915, this guitar was built for the guitarist Carmo Dias (c .1870-1935), who, in December 1933, offered it to the Museu Instrumental do Conservatório (the current Museu Nacional da Música).
