I could use some help identifying the instrument below.  It's the largest sitar I've ever seen.  The tabli is 16" and the scale length (to the leading edge of the jawari) is 37"!!    I've never seen an upper gourd this large, even on a surbahar.  What do you make of it?

Looks like a mid 60's Rikhi Ram / Kartar Chand sitar, going by the bridge scalloping, details on the neck back and general carving. My ! That's a big one ! ! !  Great for playing in A, Bb - baritone sitar. Might have been a special order custom one off.
