    But there's only one that's familiar to the western pop/rock audience. Right?

    I have no idea about any "twangey" eastern instrument in pop or rock. But in, say, jazz, you can find them all. Check Stephan Micus, Jan Garbarek it's all there..

    Don't forget the Ektar. Or is it Ectar? You know: single string, metal can, flexible wood...
