Harp Zither

what is the instrument used in marianne faithfull's "morning sun"?

this question has been annoying me for weeks!
on morning sun, the b-side to marianne faithfull's this little bird single, there is a very promininent use of some sort of string instrument.
i'm not sure what it is, although it sounds like it could be some sort of harp/zither perhaps being run through effects.
anyway, if you know what it is, or have any idea what it could be, it would be great if you could tell me!
it sounds absoloutely amazing, and i'd love to recreate this sound in my own music.

Could be an Auto harp but sounds more like the Sitar, an indian instrument used a lot by 60's bands such as the Beatles (Norwegian Wood) or Rolling Stones (Paint it black) and strangely in the 70's by the Osmonds (Love me for a reason), which sounds like the instrument you are trying to describe. I can get the same sound out of a guitar called line 6 variax
