  • Year: 1900

A thunderous 11 string harp guitar, likely distributed by the J.W. Dyer Co. and can most likely be attributed to Chris Knutsen prior to Larson-made Dyer instruments appeared, though this example bears no serial number or label. This is a solid player's grade harp guitar, and has underwent major structural restoration in its long life; numerous cracks and repairs, replaced bridge. The 25" scale mahogany neck is later, with a more recent rosewood fingerboard (walnut shim underneath). Stunning yellowed spruce soundboard is trimmed in marquetry, as is the 3-3/4" soundhole; repaired crack near harp peghead on top (extra hole for past bracket). The back and sides are walnut; back was removed at some point (guitar was rebraced) and cracks were repaired. Included in sale is a custom coffin shaped hard case.
