Is this a great pro sitar or an entry level student model?
The name badge appears to be just a sticker...is that normal for BM?
Not to say student sitars aren't great; but I think you know what I mean.
I have RKS that's good entry level but want something that I will keep.

Hey Zulu,

The sitar is about 10 years old, and its far from a student model, its very nice actually. Bashir never puts a label on his sitars, you can go over to inni's site to confirm this, indianmusicalinstruments.com (the label has always been added by a third party, I enjoyed promoting his stuff!) If the sitar is straight and the joints are intact she could be a beauty, most of Bashir's stuff lasts.

Good luck!

That looks like a very nice sitar! (and a good deal) I believe their sitars go for a little over a thousand new. I hear in general their sitars tend to have a bit of a growlier sound than most brands. Not quite a Riki Rahm/ Hiren Roy level, but I hear they are very good quality sitars and I believe Ustad Shahid Parvez is a long time Bashir player. When I bought my sitar a Bashir was my runner-up.

I've got four of them and they are all top notch, built solid. They all sing nicely in different ways, but...they all sing!

Looks like a bargain at that price, especially with that case.

The seller doesn't have the top tumba. Does anyone know if a matching tumba can be separately purchased for this model?
