Baglama saz, which is the oldest and most popular instrument of Anatolian culture, basically has two different types as short and long neck. The most important feature of short neck baglama is that it is designed to be played only in a baglama saz arrangement. It helps to increase your interest in the instrument due to the melodies being played easily. The playing of local melodies is more limited in arabesque music than long neck baglama. When you play a tune on a short-neck baglama, you do not have to make big leaps with your hands while performing, so it is said that it is more comfortable to play a short-neck baglama. The short-neck baglama gives the better performance in independent music genres and in deyish and semah which are respectively poetic forms and religious dance of Alevi people.
Short neck baglama saz is tuned differently; it is tuned in baglama tuning. In a short-neck baglama, the bottom course is tuned to D, the middle course is tuned to G and the top strings are tuned to A.
Short-neck baglama saz body length may vary from 38 to 42 cm and have strings of 0.18mm
