     Yes something strange is going on. I keep getting emails through E Bays' "My Favorite Search" for a Gibson U over and over but it turns out to have been removed or no longer available. Is this the one?  http://cgi.ebay.com/GIBSON-STYLE-U-HARP-GUITAR-1920s_W0QQitemZ250145516694QQihZ015QQcategoryZ152844QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

 Look at this one? http://cgi.ebay.com/1906-Gibson-Style-U-Harp-Guitar_W0QQitemZ280135149154QQihZ018QQcategoryZ118980QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
I have never seen one like the second one. Very cool.

about the second one: If I had the money and a way to pick it up at location I wouldn't hesitate a second... I'm making myself clear?

     I don't think this U ever had a bridge anchor/tailpiece. That's what I thought was so unique about his Guitar. My Gibson HG model R came to me without the anchor but it was obvious that it had one originally. There is an indentation of about 1/64" of the outline of the anchor on the bridge and the body area that  runs to the tail block showed further evidence of the missing piece. That was how I new which of the 2 anchors they used on my guitar so I could recreate it. This one never had one ( I believe) so I don't know how this instrument has survived and is still playable. Simply shocking!

Looks like Chinery's Mozzani has shown up again.  Someone should really  replace the fret marker.  Love that instrument and it seems at a reasonable asking price.

Wow, that's a lot of money for a seriously repaired-modded Knutsen. Kinda makes me feel it'll be impossible to get one at a less-than-crazy price now.

That's definately not a Larson. I'm actually suprised to see what people will shell out for such small bodied guitars. Larson stuff is AMAZING but I still wouldn't pay anything over 1500 for a parlor size guitar. Now the bigger euphonons and prairie states? That's a whole different story. The internet really pumps people up into thinking they have something

I'm going to have to start paying Nate not to announce some of these...I wouldn't mind trying for this one (at a reasonably low figure).  A poor photo has been up in the 1b Gallery next to the Gibsons for some time.  Too bad it had no label when it finally turned up...

Interesting, but what's-up with the High E String? Looks unfrettable.

Just caught this on e-Bay - it's not a harp guitar, but an amazing historical piece - Could this be the only prototype Gibson A style mandolin in existance?

I'm sure everyone interested in it already knows, but there is a super funky early Knutsen HG on the 'Bay right now. WHAT wood could that be?

I am absolutely not an expert on wood, but I believe the whole dang thing is some weird slab of Brazilian - to my eye, it's very similar to the confirmed Doan's confirmed Brazilian, #HGT15 - probably from the same batch?  It was built in the same time frame, style, features, label, etc (tho with a new 3-ply colored herringbone!?).  At any rate, that's how I've inventoried it in the Archives which will post tonight or tormorrow.
