Knutsen Harp Hawaiian Convertible Guitar    

This cryptic specimen was owned by none other than Chris Knutsen, himself.  See April, 2006 Harp Guitar Player of the Month!

The headstock most closely resembles HCP7, but Knutsen's has a blonde top with the connecting bracket on the front of the headstock.
