Knutsen Harp Hawaiian Guitar   

This looks like a very nice, fancy instrument. It has been in the family of current owner Mike Dempsey since it was new. Unfortunately, he sent me the picture years ago, and I've lost track of him. Anyone knowing the whereabouts of Mike or this guitar, please let me know!
