Extreme Knutsen

Pointy, ain’t it?!  This is a new Chris Knutsen “Double-Point” harp guitar specimen that has been in the original family possibly since it was new.  It is amazingly good shape for a 1900’s instrument.  Compared to the typical double-points (large 12-strings-on-neck HGs and small short-scale instruments) it is remarkably exaggerated, creating a bit of a “pinwheel” shape, or perhaps a Ninja star.  The instrument was leaning back some in the photo, so this is not quite the true perspective.

Nothing too out-of-the-ordinary beyond the extreme design, but another for the record books!
