Harp Bass and The Eight Stringed Lady

This is an image of two different instruments. The one on the left is called the Harp Bass. The one on the right is The Eight Stringed Lady, unfortunately this lady doesn't play so well. Now the Harp Bass gets some interesting sounds coming out of it if you place a contact mic on the body. Neither of these instruments have actually been played by me live, but there is a rumor about a drunken drummer banging away at it one night while playing a gig at Mezzrows.
Here is a close up of the Harp Bass. For some reason, even though I went to collage for photography, i can't seem to get a good photo of either of these instruments.
