Knutsen Harp Ukulele

This is the fanciest uke known, with rope binding on the back! 
Note that the rope binding on this one has the narrowest, tightest rope pattern used on the ukes.
These photos are post-restoration. Kerry Char re-did the original, poor neck repair (see image) so that it looks fairly original again.
