Shouldn't the puff be coming out the front, then?

Playability aside, I have to wonder what that monstrosity sounds like.

I owned that guitar for a hot minute. It sounded ok but not amazing. It was clearly based on the harp guitar designs of Chris Knutsen, which is why I got it, but it's a classical and the added arms didn't really add a whole lot to the sound except for a bit of built in reverb.

Thank you

Hi, I have a guitar that looks very similar the only thing is mine is a little different by the switches. I purchased mine from a local guitar shop in La Crosse Wi 4 years ago. When it was traded or sold to the guitar shop it came with no history. It was labeled the Mystery guitar. I guess at this time I know of only two ever being made the one in the post and my guitar, but the funny thing is I see the guitar and case are identical. It sure would be nice to solve this mystery. Thank you for posting that picture and if at all possible if you could some how find the original post in the classifieds I would truly appreciate it. Thank you and I hope to hear from you again soon.

Have you opened the control cavity to check the pot codes? Any numbers or letters could help at least pinpoint country and approximate date of manufacture. Who made the tuners? Close up pics of the pickup and tuners would also be helpful.

Does it use flat head or phillips head screws?

Hmm, that's probably an internal manufacturers code and possibly also telling you that it's a 220K pot? Not a manufacturers ID and date code. Sometimes they're stamped on the side of the pot.

Pictures would definitely help.

Do the extra holes produce a punchy yet warm tone? Can you tune it to 432hz frequencies so you can go to sleep while playing it?
