The S-12 is the very first U.S.A. made, all solid wood, production line modern harp guitar.  This instrument was designed to sound and play great. It was engineered to be light weight without compromising structural integrity or acoustic tone. Having carefully examined several early 1900’s original Knutsen and Larson harp guitars, this design was modeled after these famous vintage classics. It is improved with some modern advancements including higher geared guitar tuners for easier tuning, adjustable truss rods, and CNC duplicated neck carving for precision and consistency. Without neglecting traditional construction methods a great sounding instrument was achieved with exceptional play-ability for today’s professionals.
