Check the pics of this little beauty that came to my attention today, monday 4th april.

https://picasaweb.google.com/trippymonkey/DelhiSitarFind?feat=directlink

Pakistani friends I've known have sometimes had sitars in this style & my Delhi dealer, Shaan, reckons it's about 75 years old. It HAS been slightly refinished & has a, wait for it, IVORY bridge!!!
The neck is like a Surbahar's & it has its own natural 'echo chamber'. It's wonderful & responsive to play. AND is a possible seller!?!!??

What do ya all think???

Could it be an old Rikhi Ram? There are many similar features to the one I was using while in India. I really like that Lahori style.
