Name All String Instruments

Name all the stringed instruments that are played by directly interacting with the strings (for example, piano is excluded). It's difficult to make a formal distinction on where one instrument ends with its variations and where another begins, so the quiz designer is open to suggestions.
Includes ancient and some novelty instruments that gained some time of popularity or formal acceptance
We will not consider a fiddle to be a separate instrument here
Remember that there are electric versions of some instruments

I am well aware that some of my decisions about whether or not to include an instrument are capricious. I'm not an expert on stringed musical instruments - comments, suggestions, and rebuttals are welcome!
