Knutsen Harp Guitar    

This instrument is pictured on the Los Angeles 4x4" Knutsen business card/flyer in the collection of Jean Findlay.
It is only the third "Double Point" known. It appears to be a 3/4 size "parlor" instrument with a 19" scale length.
One wonders why Knutsen used this instrument rather than one of his L.A.-made Hawaiians for this ad.
