Yep ! That torpoise shell looks like a forest fire against bare wood. I'm going darkish brown for body finish and a reddish gourd. Hopefully these colors will compliment the pick guard.

Ok looks great. Very old school with the old RR style string holder.

If you refer to the three brass (not bone) pins - yep ! That is indeed retained as old school. Efficient use of space. Combing the strings as they head out toward the backs of the bridges via the block with guide holes is the update though allowing for bead space and no bleeding fingers from untrimmed string loop ends.

Yes that is what I mean. Are you building this for yourself or someone else?

Yes. This one is already well spoken for. I am in the middle of building a similar sitar. Trim and color could go anywhere at this point. It is up for grabs.
