This puzzle was patented in America in 1965 by Joseph L Little. Famous Japanese puzzle inventor Tadao Muroi (since deceased) became interested in the puzzle after playing with a wooden copy of it. He thought it offered an interesting challenge with the three unusual shaped pieces. He subsequently built a wooden copy of the puzzle with a few changes in proportions of the pieces of the puzzle. Hanayama thought it was very suitable to make a cast version and released it in October 2003.
With this new puzzle being styled after a violin and its strings, the keyword here is “strings”.
Size: The longest violin piece is 70mm x 20mm
