Knutsen Harp Guitar    

My apologies to the owners, but this has to be Knutsen's silliest harp guitar ever!
It really needs its own category - "Lower Bass Point, Atrophied Arm," or something. However, as "withered" as this bass extension is, it still must be considered a hollow-arm "pseudo harp guitar." Note how Knutsen still provides the neck-adjusting bracket!
