Fischer 4811. Issued 2017.11.27. Commemorating Jaroslaw "Jarek" Smietana (29 March 1951–2 Sept 2013), Polish jazz guitarist, composer and band leader.



This is the guitar illusrated on the stamp although I can't identify it. Obviously a custom, hand-made item.

The one Boliviano value of the country's 1987 "Musical Instruments of Bolivia" set shows three charangos. According to Wikipedia, "The charango is a small Andean stringed instrument of the lute family which probably originated in the Quechua and Aymara populations in the post-colonial times".
