If you only saw it now then you'd think it was just a few decades old at most, eh ?!?!?

Very cool!!
I will someday add a Mohan Singh and a Sher Mohammad to my collection. 
I really want to play a Sher Mohammad. 
I hear they are wonderful little sitars.

Hey Carleton.  Check this one out:

Not sure what the No. 75 means.  The 75th instrument made in his shop?  I've not seen this on any other Mohan Singhs.

Sweet!!
I love the Lahore style sitars.
One of the sitars I lust for the most is a very small old Rikki Ram a friend of mine has. 
It is small scale and very light, and has the most amazing delicate tone. 
Tony K has pictures of it in his museum pages.
