Dyer’s harp guitar is one of the most popular models among the players of this instrument today. This copy is based on a design by Chris Knutsen from 1898. Dyer contracted the Chicago brothers Larson to manufacture the instrument when Knutsen’s patent had expired. The special headstock with inlays and tuning pegs for the extra low-tuned strings is attributed to the Larson brothers.
