The one I've heard (I believe it was not a Stahl, but was built by the Larsons) sounded pretty good, as I recall.

...and so I can finally add a note to this amusing thread...
Yes, Fred heard the original hollow arm Stahl "goiter guitar" at the Harp Guitar Gathering...to me, it's a bit like hearing a parlor guitar accompanied by its own full-size sub-bass section - but it combines - via the top - into one cohesive thing.  Stacy seems to prefer it to any of his past Dyers.  Will the new one be similar?  Who knows?

So Gregg, the guys say you stated it's a Herman HAuser... Something to say about it?

I really have questions about the maker...

Yeah, he does seem to be implying that I actually communicated with him, huh? Caveat emptor!

well according to him he have your blessing:
"Dear Benoit,
 
It definitely is not a Brauer. Brauer harp guitar bridges look nothing like the bridge on this guitar, at least on the several Brauer harp guitars I have seen. The harp guitar expert is Michael Sharp, and he said:

"If you're going to sell harp guitars, this is an invalueable tool to educate yourself. Gregg Miner is the POPE of harp guitars!!!!!!!!

http://www.harpguitars.net  This is a Hauser made in Vienna aprox.1927.It is rare though do to the7 course sub bass,they were usually 9.  To find the Hauser you have,go to that site,click on ( harp guitar organology part 2 ),find type 2c,click on that,and scroll down until you find your Hauser.There is an EXACT example of your harp model!! Kind of gave me chills when I saw it,but I already knew it was a Hauser."

 If you can point us to a guitar that clearly shows that someone other than hauser made this, I would be glad to change the listing.  But we have combed through EVERY guitar on this harp guitar website, and this guitar is closer to a Hauser than it is to any other guitar.
 
Best,
 
Patrick Fleck

Here is my email to the saler:
"Dear Patrick:
                    I understand is tempting to stile make believe this
instrument is a Hermann Hauser, but it's not, if you where honest you would
state on your listing that one of the luthiers who disproved the origine was
Hermann Hauser III. You just trying to make money pretending it may be a
Hauser... It's sad...

Best regards
Benoit
PS: I fowarded this mail to Mr Hermann Hauser III as well"

I hate scams...

Hello

If someone is looking for a nice and affordable nylon harp guitar this one is great and not too expensive. I don't know the saler.
Having 7 basses you can tune it what ever you want (chromatic or diatonic) But remember they where made to be tune down to A', if you go lower you may need to amplify it to get some juice.
BUT DON'T EVEN THINK PUTTING METAL STRINGS ON IT!!!!!!

Cheers
Benoît
