Knutsen Harp Guitar 1906

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

Early 1900s. I think 1906-1908. Made in Seattle by Christopher Knutsen, the inventor of the harp guitar.

This is a 3/4 size so the scale length is about 19 1/8” which’s gives the guitar a very low string tension at standard tuning. The guitar side can be tuned up and played without issue. I haven’t tuned up the bass strings because the bridge is cracked in a couple places and needs to be reglued. That’s to be expected of a nearly 120 year old guitar, especially one with all the added tension of the bass strings. There are also a few places that need to be reglued along the back and sides(shown in photos). The top has a warp on the bass side near the bridge (shown in photos).

Tuners are in good shape and all work fine. Everything appears to be all original. No case included but the 3/4 size makes it much easier to find something that will work. I pretty sure a keyboard case would be a good fit.

This will need to be restored but the price reflects that. It would be much cheaper to buy and repair this than to buy one that’s had the work done for you. This is a limited time offer. I’m looking for a trustworthy luthier as you’re reading this so this ad will likely only be on reverb for a week or less.
