Made a post a few weeks back regarding this sitar I'm restoring.
Thought i'd post some updates. It turns out that the person I comissioned to make my bridge and the missing inlay etc happens to be the grandson of the person who built my sitar in the first place!

Of all the chances haha I randomly choose his grandson. The son of the maker is still alive too, at the age of 80 hes still working.  Turns out, all the inlaywork, and the langot etc are all made of deerhorn.


Never thought i'd know the maker or the names of the maker anyway. 😉 Very happy to know the family is still alive and making instruments.
