Knutsen inspired Harp Guitar

Inspired on the amazing instruments of Kris Knutsen from the beginning of the twentieth century this harp guitar have the vintage look of his instruments and even some of his original ideas: heel-less neck, treble strings bank and lower boot point. As well for decoration I used rope binding and mahogany cap under treble tuners and bass head. But the features are modern: 1/10 Richard banjo tuners, Gotoh guitar tuners and embedded violin fine tuners on the treble bridge, titanium double action truss ord. Sitka top and mahogany body and neck wit ebony fingerboard.
