Thanks Barend Bhai!

Just added another 3 pictures. The idea was based around that.
Waseem sitarmaker took it a step further. He is free to do as he wills on this one, fingers crossed. From what he tells me it's going to look good.
This instrument will be used for folk singing. Which I will explain after its completion. There was a post regarding this few months back.

Really like those flat back pothwari sitars! beautiful decorations.
Think you mean this topic (I started)?

I guess yours won't be flat back?
Btw I notice that the chikari post is very high upon the neck near the higher frets (on the pictures you have just added). Do they use a higher pitch for the chikaris?

Absolutely amazing! almost over the top on the decorations but still very nice. Curious how that baby sounds....

that is really gorgeous work. are the pegs ebony? He must be making his own pegs-especially those main pegs look great, not the mass-manufactured indifferently made ones you see almost universally on everyone else's sitars made nowadays in India.
