Knutsen Harp Guitar    

And yet another, fourth instrument of this type from the Dan Most Estate. 
This seems to be a different instrument from either the two in the book, or HGT27, but who knows what Dan had done to it.
It's just possible that either this or HGT27 (or both?!) are one of the instruments in the book, but with a new top.
