I saw it also at the Harmony Central site.  It looks like the guitar 
an idea from the oud, which is also an 11-string instrument (all but the
bottom string are doubled).

Can't wait for my own fretless guitar to arrive from fretlessguitar.com 
basically a fretless version of the Fernandes Sustainer Native Pro guitar).
