Knutsen Harp Hawaiian Convertible Guitar    

This is only the second of two known examples of this unusual style. Like HCN1, it has the same slotted, adjustable metal bracket joining the two necks (like the "Upper Treble Point" Harp Hawaiians) - so we can assume it has the same convertible brackets on the "hinged" neck.
