Knutsen Harp Guitar    

Though it can't be seen in the picture (a portion of the Linrod Family Orchestra photo), this is clearly a Seattle "Lower Bass Point" harp guitar. Obviously, it would be difficult to positively ID it, if the actual instrument was ever found.
Again, I'm trying to avoid duplication and "over counting," while still inventorying each instrument that Knutsen made.
